Shanna in a Dress & Friends is back and better than ever! Joining Shanna on stage at Boulder's beloved downtown coffeehouse will be:
Hope Dunbar: Hope makes the trek from Nebraska to Boulder to bring the vastness and scarcity of the great plains with her in every song she sings. She brings the stories of friends and neighbors, of lovers and dreams sung with a pioneer spirit that stakes a claim, digs in and refuses to leave not matter how hard the wind blows. Her debut record, "Three Black Crows" was released in October of 2017.
Andrew Sturtz: Since his first gigs at only 12 years old and recording an EP as a teenager, Andrew Sturtz has captured audiences with his ability to shift seamlessly between soulful acoustic music and fronting bands from multiple genres. From residencies in Boulder, CO staples No Name Bar and The Laughing Goat coffeehouse to more prominent appearances as The Walnut Room in Denver and Uncommon Ground in Chicago, his precise guitar grooves and seemingly limitless voice inspire comparisons to scene favorites such as Martin Sexton and Amos Lee, among others.
Paul Kimbiris: Paul Kimbiris is a recovering east coaster who has been living in Boulder, CO for almost 7 years. He's opened for acts such as Hamell on Trial, Gregory Alan Isakov and Langhorne Slim. His first full length release was released in 2014 and was produced by Philip Parker (Glowing House, Paper Stars). His songs have appeared on network TV shows such as "Gang Related" on FOX, the ABC drama "Forever". He's planning an EP release show at etown hall on May 12, 2018.
Shanna in a Dress: Shanna in a Dress is your quirky best friend who refuses to wear pants. A smashing combination of humor, truth, and poignancy all wrapped up in a sweet voice, this witty wordsmith calls what she does "snarky folk pop from a clever millennial who sucks at dating." She has been performing since her days at the University of Virginia where she attracted a loyal following of fans that loved her feel-good energy, catchy melodies, and entertainingly interactive stage banter. Shanna hosts a monthly showcase called Women in Song and dedicates much of her time to supporting other artists in the Front Range community.
