Matthew Shannon with Mike Bass & Jonathon Watt

Windwalker Presents: Matthew Shannon with Mike Bass & Jonathan Watt

Saturday October 20th
Doors 7 pm / Show 8 pm
$10 Tickets: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3582461

Jonathan Watt's music can be described as a blend of soulful Americana and Roots-Rock, with a dash of foot-stompin' Bluegrass, garnished with bluesy harmonica. Jonathan weaves together lyrics to tell well-crafted and insightful stories, from funny and light-hearted to heart-wrenching and fervid. Jonathan has been honing his musical skills for nearly 20 year, playing multiple instruments including fiddle, guitar, upright bass, mandolin and harmonica. He proudly calls Lansing, MI his home!

Forged from the fiery chasm of an autumn campfire somewhere in Michigan, Mike Bass brings you face-melting acoustic tunes. Using a combination of strumming, finger-picking, snapping, elvish rope, and percussion, this singing/songwriting fool will sweep you off your feet in both English and Japanese

Matthew Shannon is a local Lansing musician who has played in various bands over the last 20 years. He is currently an instructor at the Frandor Guitar Center, and teaches pretty much anything with strings on it. Matthew is also embarking on his first attempt at a solo career, with the hopes of working together with the Lansing community to help bring attention to the overwhelming amount of talent within the capital city through collaborations. He considers, Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, and Nickel Creek his main influences in his songwriting. You can usually find him at various open-mics in the greater Lansing area.
