Doors: 8pm Opener: TBA 9pm Sean McConnell: 10:30pm
Performing Secondhand Smoke in its entirety followed by solo acoustic set with very special guests.
Growing up in the coffee houses of the Boston folk scene, Sean watched his parents playing songs written by Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, David Wilcox, Shawn Colvin, Harry Chapin, CSNY, James Taylor and others of the like. Unknown to himself or his parents, Sean was soaking it all in and locking it away somewhere inside. Now, an artist in his own right, Sean travels the states performing his own style of music that he describes as “Lyric Driven Roots Rock with Soul.” A live Sean McConnell show is truly a dynamic experience. One moment reckless rock, and the next an intimate acoustic pin drop moment. These days, Sean finds a lot of his time spent touring Texas where he has truly been adopted into the “Red Dirt” scene. As well as being an artist, Sean also boasts a successful songwriting career. After signing a publishing deal right out of college with Warner/Chappell Publishing, His songs have been recorded by such artists as the Plain White T’s, Jason Castro, Phil Stacey, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Randy Rogers Band, Wade Bowen, Eli Young Band, David Nail, Julianne Hough, Jimmy Wayne, and many others. Whether in his Nashville home, in a hotel room, or in the back of his van, Sean is always writing.
