American Roots: Nov 18
Rock Island Line
Skiffle and the rise of British Rock, 1955-60
At its height, England's late 1950s Skiffle movement boasted over 30,000 bands: teenaged boys with washboards, improvised one string tea chest basses, penny whistles and whatever guitars they could get their hands on teaching themselves their own special take on American music based in folk, country and blues and the jug bands of the 1920s gleaned from hard-to-get 78 imports. The kids in this movement are the ones who went to the American Folk Blues concerts that brought Muddy Waters, Rosetta Tharpe, Sonny Boy Williamson and many others to England, and went on to create the British Invasion, as the Beatles, the Kinks, The Who, Led Zeppelin, and more. Chico Schwall's American Roots pays tribute to one of most important and least understood (and known) chapters in 20th century popular music.

Christmas at The Shedd 2020
Shirly Andress
& The Jazz Kings: Dec 10-13
All Is Bright
Christmas at The Shedd
“For me,” muses Shirley Andress, “Christmas is much more than reminiscing or being enamored with the ‘old’ stuff. It’s a feeling of hope and a longing for peace. For most of us, Christmas carols conjure up fond memories of home. They lift our mood and make us feel a little less lonely and a little more loved. There is a greater sense of giving, family and community when we sing these songs together. The composers and lyricists of The Great American Christmas Songbook have instilled the sounds and images of Christmas in our hearts and minds. These songs make us feel better—not just about the past or present, but also about the future. And if ever there was a time that we, as a community, could use some social connectedness, goodwill and cheer, it’s now!”
