"Shawn’s performances are always amazing. Much of his music is songs that you have heard before, bit, when Shawn plays them it is like hearing them for the first time again. In his music you will hear the influences of contemporary rock greats like Bruce Springsteen, Bruce Cockburn, Paul Simon, and Billy Joel. However, Shawn’s music and style is all his own."
-Excerpt from Friday Night Lights
We are honoured to have Shawn perform at the Opera House.
