December 9th @ 7:00pm
Shake is the first musician to be named Texas Music Association Entertainer of the Year three times (2004, 2008, 2011). Weaving sophisticated harmonies through his songs
and drawing from various genres, Shake created a style of folk-rock that is uniquely his own. His repertoire consists of a blend of love songs, ballads, and waltzes, skillfully balanced with
lively rockabilly tunes and soulful rhythm & blues pieces. His lyrics are imbued with beautiful imagery, catchy phrases, and inventive similes and metaphors. But it is the rich, melodious voice
of Shake Russell that breathes life and spirit into the lyrics. Local singer-songwriter Jaunetta Cooper will open this concert with some of her original music.
"Shake’s music walks right up to you, says howdy, and gives you a big hug." ~ Bruce Bryant, Anderson Fair
