This talented duo is made up of John Mckay and Shawn Cunnane.
Guitarist/singer/songwriter John McKay blends the deeply personal insights of a man immersed in nature, places of the past along with political observations of a protest singer, and the broad musical traditionalism of a folk rock musician with the passion and commitment tot a rock and roller. A musicians musician, McKay has an element of distraction to his performance as it is difficult to ignore the guitar playing which is in competition with vivid mind-expanding lyrics.
Songwriter Shawn Cunnane’s diverse style ranges from Travis picking ballads with jazzy overtones to bluegrassy foot stompers. The unique textures he creates in his originals and interpretations are intimate and alluring. Shawn’s songs have been recorded and performed by many artists including David Grisman and Matt Doherty.
