THE VALLEY SHANTYMAN (Country/Rock/Whatever!, Mallorytown)
March 15, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Valley Shantyman is a singer-songwriter hailing from the St. Lawrence and Ottawa Valley.
Drawing on musical influences from Sam Cooke, Bob Marley, Willie Nelson, John Lennon, Chris Cornell, Roy Orbison, Stompin’ Tom Connors, and Jim Cuddy, The Valley Shantyman cut his musical-teeth while backpacking along the Pacific Coast in California. The long hours committed to this epic musical journey created the foundation for the “Hecklers and Hooligans Roadshow”.
After a chance meeting with Willie Nelson in 2009, The Valley Shantyman aspired to become a professional musician. As a result of delivering more than 1,000 shows in the past 5 years, the Valley Shantyman has evolved into a musical chameleon and can deliver 10 different – three hour shows – with both originals and music from the 1940s to the present day. Nelson’s words of wisdom inspired the self-taught rebel-rouser to live within the songs that he performs, take care of his friends, and remember that music will always feed you. The remote riverbanks of the Ottawa River, St. Lawrence River, the sandy beaches of the Great Lakes and piers of the Atlantic Ocean have not had a moment of quiet since.
The Valley Shantyman is also the resident musician at Wilderness Tours. This balladeer has shared venues with the Sheep Dogs, Arkells, Classified, Jason Blaine, Tebey, See Spot Run, Bob Marley’s “Wailers” and was most recently adopted by “Whiskey Jack” (the former band of Canadian legend Stompin’ Tom Connors).
