Shan Kowert & Annie Acton will play a fine acoustic concert on Saturday, March 2nd, at 7:00 PM.
Shan + Annie = ShAnnie
The duo comprised of Shan Kowert and Annie Acton, "naturally" formed in 2005; when chemistry ignited thier musical adventure. ShAnnie's music is soulful, lyrical and mesmerizing. They write with a cinematic approach. It's descriptive, leaving you with a feeling that you are a part of the song. A ShAnnie performance brings the whole experience to fruition. It ascends the music to a high crescendo. No matter who is taking the vocal lead, the other is graciously releasing a harmony that will chime in your ears and your hearts. ShAnnie will not only lure you in, but they will leave you wanting more...
"The Station" is one of those discs you put in the player when you have guests over and everything has to be perfect."
- Lucky Boyd, Co-Founder, My Texas Music
"ShAnnie...Like cosmopolitan purveyors of fine wine at a hip cabaret...with rich vocals and dramatic stylings..."
- Bob Himer, Western Trail House Concert
"Tis is one of those groups that you never get tired of listening to."
- Ivan Nossa, Muses Muse
ShAnnie-- Voted Vocal Duo 2012
John Inmon--"The Station"
Voted "Producer of the Year 2012"
From Blind Lemon Jefferson to T-Bone Walker and Charlie Christian, to Eric Johnson, Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, the Lone Star State has always been a hot bed of string-bending guitar wizards. Though he is far too self-effacing to ever put himself in such august company, John Inmon fits seamlessly into that six-string continuum.
His peers know John as one of the finest guitarists in Austin, Texas (and, considering the competition, that is high praise indeed); his fans know him as the signature guitar style that has, at one time or another, propelled the music of Townes van Zandt, Jimmy LaFave, Eliza Gilkyson, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely, Delbert Mcclinton, Marcia Ball, Omar and the Howlers, the Lost Gonzo Band, Bruce Robison, Pat Green, Michael Martin Murphy, Keith Sykes, Larry Joe Taylor, Rusty Weir, Bobby Bridger and many more.
As winner of the Texas Music Awards Producer of the Year in April 2012 for ShAnnie’s second cd “The Station”, John has become known as a first rate producer, producing CD's for a number of artists nationwide.
"I've been making records since the 60's, so I know how to make records and I believe it's my duty to pass along some of what I've learned to new artists. Plus, I get a kick out of it- it's what I do."
ShAnnie-- Nominated Vocal Duo - 2008"
