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 Paul Simon with a dash of Paul Westerberg.
Shawn plays at 8 p.m. on Friday, November 9th. Also appearing is the Fred Thomas Trio, Billy Wallace, the Shitbirds, and Sir Jarlsberg. Freddy's Bar is located at 627 5th Ave., between 17th & 18th St. in Brooklyn, NY, near the Prospect R train stop. Admission is free, with a one-drink minimum. No one under 21 admitted.
