Special Night – The Shepherd’s Crook, Evan Champagne

evan champagne

Friday, May 23rd @  8 pm: “Evan Champagne takes an organic approach in fusing a variety of styles and instrumentation together with the acoustic guitar.

A multi-instrumentalist with truly signature vocals, he pushes things a step further with his artful use of live dub technology (aka: live looping).

Evan performs unique renditions of the hits and introspective original material, which he sells hundreds of copies of yearly, bootleg style, straight off stage. A live show is actually the only place you can purchase his hand-made album! “
