OOAK Art Gallery and Maples present Shantytown.
Shantytown is a folk/rock band specializing in original songs and ballads, and creative interpretations of cover songs from a wide range of musical styles. They perform songs about life and living in the mountains; from wistful, haunting ballads to high-energy blues and rock. Organic harmonies and multi-talented performers with years of experience make Shantytown an experience to be remembered.
Shantytownâ€™s core members are Kirk Banner on vocals and guitar, Buddy Seagraves on electric guitar, bass, mandolin and vocals, Dave Zimmer, percussionist par excellence, and Ron Johnson, lyricist, sound engineer, and debonair man-about-town. Also featuring Fred Buck, keyboardist, accordion maestro, and proud husband of Paula McWhirter-Buck, back-up singer par excellence!
