Shannon McNally
A prolific artist and troubadour, Shannon McNally, originally from New York now lives in Oxford, Mississippi having relocated from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Focused on American roots music, she has worked with visionaries such as Rodney Crowell, Jim Dickinson and Dr. John. A critics' darling, McNally's last few years have cemented her reputation as a singer, performer, songwriter and new music industry survivor. Her velvety and highly expressive voice wraps around pretty much anything she sings like a country-soul moonlit braid.

The last of her ten recording projects/albums, "Small Town Talk", was a collaborative tribute to the late Bobby Charles, conceived and created together with Dr. John and his Lower 911 Band at Dockside Studios, in Maurice, Louisiana. The record was nominated for Offbeat Magazine's Album of the year 2014 and features a duet with Vince Gill and a guest appearance by Derek Trucks.
2014 found Shannon on the road with Rodney Crowell in support of his 'Tar Paper Sky' album on which she sang a duet on the song 'Famous Last Words'.
Most recently McNally performed with John Doe and Bruce Springsteen for the Music Cares Person of the Year dinner honoring Bob Dylan and was a featured performer at the Kennedy Center Tribute to American Songster Huddie Leadbelly. She was also featured in comedienne Tig Nataro's Showtime Network special "Knock, knock it's Tig".
Most currently McNally is representing the state of Mississippi and the Recording Academy as a resident artist performing six nights a week, in the Grammy Experience Room curated by the Grammy Museum aboard Norwegian Cruise Line's newest ship, The Getaway. McNally will also be part of the opening ceremonies for the Mississippi Grammy Museum opening in November 2015.
