be playing a special CD release show at Rooster's Wife in Aberdeen this Sunday evening
- the show starts at 6:46pm! Lizzy Ross will open the show with a set of her
own, and then join the expanded Jon Shain Trio - Jon, FJ, John, and Bill, along
with drummer Evans Nicholson as we play the tunes off the new CD.
I would love to see you there - come
hear the new songs - I'll have copies of my new CD and some spiffy new T-shirts,
|"From Durham, NC,
Jon produces a bubbling, slow-cooked folk-blues jam that's irresistible.
— Trent River Coffee Company, New
Bern/Craven County Convention & Visitors Center|
|"He is a master blues
guitarist, which is a distinction you may not fully appreciate until you see the
amount of finger acrobatics that go into coaxing those sounds from an acoustic guitar...Shain's
lyrics are based on simple words and simple ideas that add up to common stories
with uncommon depth."
— Justin Shatwell, Yankee
|"The fine North Carolina
singer-songwriter has hella acoustic guitar chops marinated in swing, ragtime, and
Piedmont blues. A former improv-rocker with the band Flying Mice, Shain delivers
a wonderful set of vintage-sounding tunes inspired by the new recessionary South
on his latest album, Times Right Now; it also includes chestnuts such as "Careless
Love" and more than a hint of Randy Newman."
