Enjoy night two of a show by Kevin Russel on Saturday, December 14! The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Little House.

Kevin Russel is the lead vocalist and guitarist for Shinyribs. Shinyribs is the continuation of Kevin Russell’s musical journey that began in Beaumont, Texas, when, at 14, he found his father’s guitar under his bed. Following his family’s oil boom and bust migratory path, he landed in Shreveport, Louisiana, where he formed his first band. A Shinyribs show is an exaltation of spirit. It’s a hip shaking, belly laughing, soul-singing, song-slinging, down-home house party. All styles of American music are likely to be touched on, squeezed on, kissed on by this world-class band featuring Winfield Cheek on keyboards, Keith Langford on drums, Jeff Brown on bass, the Tijuana Trainwreck Horns, and The Shiny Soul Sisters - Kelley Mickwee and Alice Spencer. Whether on his 6 string ukelele or his electric guitar or singing a cappella, Russell will entertain you like no one else. The freedom with which he moves (coupled with his incredible voice) is an experience in and of itself. His original songs laced with magical-realism along with novel interpretations of popular songs old and new (George Jones, TLC, Leadbelly, T-Pain) are the true art that runs throughout. He’s Burl Ives meets Al Green; Hank, Jr. meets Teddy Pendergrass; Wendell Berry meets Chuck Berry. Learn more here.
