Touring New Yorker Daryl Shawn revisits Cloud & Kelly’s Public House in Corvallis as part of a solo tour taken entirely by train. Expect a set full of memorable melodies and a dose of guitar acrobatics; fans of Rodrigo y Gabriela, Tommy Emmanuel and Kaki King will find much of interest.
An alumnus of Berklee College of Music who went on to develop his craft during five years in Oaxaca, Mexico, Shawn combines his taste for unusual chords with the guitar-thumping techniques of flamenco and rhythms culled from African music to create an eclectic mix fueled by a healthy appetite for rocking out (and sometimes, blissing out). Deli Magazine writes, “Daryl Shawn is one of those acoustic guitar gems that can seize you and drag you along with him in an erratic dance in the pick of a string”. Shawn often complements his impressive guitar skills with winsome, colorful rhymes – think a mix of Paul Simon and Bon Iver, plus a touch of Paul Westerberg. He comes to Corvallis as part of his thirteenth solo tour around the States.
