The acoustic performance by Shannon McNally will be an unforgettable treat for all.  Shannon McNally got her first guitar at the age of 12 and never looked back.  McNally opened for Stevie Nicks and Ryan Adams, and was part of the 1999 Girl's Room tour with Tara MacLean, Kendall Payne, and Amy Correia.  Combined with the classic rock she grew up listening to – The Allman Brothers, Dr. John and Hendrix – it’s the musical center of gravity she brought to her 2002 Capitol Records debut “Jukebox Sparrow,” gaining notice from Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Leno and Letterman.  This decidedly rare approach for a woman drew the same accolades for indie-based “Geronimo”, helmed by Charlie Sexton.  On her the self-produced “Coldwater”, McNally leads her Mississippi-based band, Hot Sauce through the juncture where country and soul music meet – made all the more powerful by the keys of the late, great Jim Dickinson.  The New York Times says she’s “irresistible,” and American Songwriter praises “Coldwater” with, “Willfully loose, swampy country-soul tracks, her sensual, humid singing smack-dab in the middle.”

Space is limited and an advanced ticket purchase is required.  For more information or to purchase tickets, please call the SCHF office at 601-631-2997 or email info@southernculture.org.
