Wandering Roots Duo at Stone’s Throw
Sponsored by: A.I.M Productions
Come out to Stone’s Throw in Seymour for dinner, drinks and live music when A.I.M Productions presents The Wandering Roots duo, Shawn Taylor & Jim McKeeman.
“Music With Wandering Roots.”
With a thumping thumb, dancing fingers, wailing harp, deep, gritty, soul stirring vocals and poetic blue collar lyrics, Taylor’s songs ooze American roots; wandering roots. He’s drawn comparisons from Tom Waites to Ray Lamontagne, Bruce Springsteen to Chris Smither, but his original songs are colored by the experiences of his own working class, wandering roots. He’s been an oysterman, carpenter, hitchhiker, homeowner, familly man, Appalachian Trail ‘thru-hiker’ and a performing musician and song writer, for over twenty years. He plays venues from New England to Nashville and has shared the stage with artists such as, Maria Muldaur, Peter Mulvey, Vance Gilbert, Garnet Rodgers and Caravan of Thieves.
The ‘Wandering Roots’ band is an ever evolving ‘tribe’ of players that have developed around the body of Shawn Taylor’s original ‘Wandering Roots’ songs, and around mutual exploration of the deep well of American Roots music. It began with Taylor’s debut CD release “Wandering Roots” (2008).
Wandering Roots perform in various configurations, from duo to quartet and pulls in members from various directions. This has allowed the songs, sounds and live sets, to wander in their growth; drawing organically from blues, bluegrass, rock, jazz, country, reaggae, folk, pop, Irish, world and beyond.
