Meredith Shaw Opening for Shanna In A Dress
August 19 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm CDT
Join us at Cooper’s Landing where we have two great musical acts Meredith Shaw and Shanna In A Dress! Meredith will be the opening act for Shanna In A Dress.
Raised on a Missouri farm, Meredith educated herself early on the powerful women in music, such as Tammy Wynette, Loretta, and Dolly. A fiery blend of traditional country and current production, Meredith’s music is passionate, empowering, and relatable.
SHANNA IN A DRESS
Award-winning singer/songwriter Shanna in a Dress kicks off her Summer 2021 cross-country bike tour July 4th weekend in Seattle. Shanna’s “Tour de Dress” will take her from the Pacific Northwest through her hometown of Boulder, Colorado before heading east to New England for Labor Day weekend.
Shanna in a Dress is your quirky best friend who refuses to wear pants. She says what everyone is thinking but no one else will say and you will get an uncensored journey of clever humor and heartbreak with a hefty sense of entertainment at her shows. This witty wordsmith is known for making audiences laugh and cry, sometimes in the same song. Think Jason Mraz mixed in with Ingrid Michaelson with a twist of Phoebe Buffay from Friends all wrapped up in a sweet voice accented by guitar, piano, and ukulele.
Shanna started her career at the University of Virginia, biked across the country and fell in love with Colorado, and now keeps the music flowing out of Boulder unless she is touring the US or Europe. You can’t get the same Shanna in a Dress show twice with her spontaneous banter and playful stage presence. She manages to teeter the line masterfully of taking on complex subject matters with smart accessible lyrics. Her songs are laden with clever wordplay and delight audiences of all ages.
In 2020 alone, Shanna was a winner in the Kerrville New Folk competition, winner of the Great River Folk Fest Song Competition, a semi-finalist in Songwriter Serenade, and a Grassy Hill Emerging Artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. Her debut record’s wildly successful crowdfunding campaign reached 50% of its goal the day it was launched before ending up at 200% of the original goal. The album, titled “Robot” is scheduled for release in 2021. Shanna has most recently been seen gracing the stages of the South Florida Folk Festival, Swallow Hill Music, the Black Bear Americana Festival, and the Casey Jones Music Fest. Shanna’s tour with Americana trio Red Molly, postponed due to COVID, will be rescheduled at a later date.
