The Shelby Foot Three / Bio

The Shelby Foot Three is the string-band collaboration of singer/songwriters James Wygant (Banjo, spoons) and Matt Shaw (harmonica, guitar). The two began writing songs together in 2013 and joined by bluegrass veteran Bill Chestnut on bass and former punk "black magic" Steve Manseau on mandolin, a quartet was formed. The group's songs span the spectrum from introspective, lighter-wave-inducing love tunes to vacuous, string-dusting, boot-stomping love songs. The group has been putting together a collection of demo songs and can be heard live all around the San Francisco Bay area.
