Friday, October 10 at 8 pm, The Shepherd’s Crook presents:
Shelzee and the Sax Man. Two person band consisting of Mark Gravelle on saxophone and Michelle Emory on vocals and acoustic guitar.
The duo covers the likes of The Lumineers, Mumford and Sons, Rihanna, Serena Ryder, and Coldplay, and is superb at engaging the crowd.
Brett can sing like no tomorrow, and Mark does the same on guitar. Put the two together … Dyn-o-mite !!
They cycle through solo segments, duo, backing track accompaniment on, off, one instrument, two instruments, shifting leads, shifting harmonies…
They remain interesting by virtue of their constantly fresh sound.
Luke Sawczak will tinkle the ivories for appreciaters of the excellent Visual Art collection, rooted in Fred Helson’s collection of 105 historically significant paintings.
Always a wonderful acoustic in The Gallery.

Bill Craig, the Irish Musician and Entertainer, has been well received by audiences at The Shepherd’s Crook.
From his Website:
“Bill Craig’s performance is relaxed eclectic, thought provoking, goofy and entertaining. His casual attitude is designed to include, not exclude his audience, be it eight or eight hundred people. Bill puts all his energy into his songs and makes a point of having a good time on stage. This usually translates to his audience having a similar experience.”
They’re new to me. I can tell you nothing, other than: if they’re playing the GibRock, they probably rock, and they are probably good 🙂
