Opening the show at 6:00PM is local artist Chelsey Cherkas! Admission is $15.
Shaela’s sound is distinctly fresh and suggestive of contemporary influences like Lucinda Williams, Neko Case & Howe Gelb. Her affinity for the classic country greats of the yesteryear gives her an unparalleled disposition as an original ambassador of a new wave of country music. When asked to describe her music she replies simply: "Honky Tonk." But that’s certainly not all it is. Tear in your beer ballads, dance hall shuffles, and dark alt-country craft work are all part of the package. With a voice that will send shivers up your spine and a penchant for turning a phrase that will make you relish in its simple eloquence, Shaela’s musical force is unabated and unrivaled. Now in the latter throws of polishing her 2nd full length release (expected early 2018), look for Shaela to make a major career high water mark in the coming year.
Recent career highlights include a TV placement on HBO’s “True Blood,” a songwriting/production session in Los Angeles with Tim Feehan (Park Drive Productions), winning the South Country Fair songwriting competition and continuing to perform steadily while raising two children.
