FB event –>

Scott Shea is a honed folk/roots/Americana singer-songwriter, living on Canada’s West Coast. Shea is the son of legendary guitarist, Red Shea, known for his distinctive pick work and memorable leads for Gordon Lightfoot.

Shea’s debut solo album, Let it Storm (2014), distills the richness of his own particular musical background. With expressive lyrics and memorable melodies, the album was developed during a reflective period following his father’s death and composed on the same guitar his father used in all of the early Lightfoot hits.

Paying homage to the foundational essences of songwriting, Let it Storm was recorded in Austin, Texas, produced by Gordie Johnson (Big Sugar) and features Willie Nelson’s sister, Bobbie Nelson on keyboard. Shea will perform as part of an acoustic trio on his upcoming shows, joined by Adam Dobres (Ruth Moody, Wailin’ Jennys) on acoustic guitar, national slide & mandolin and Blake Palm on upright bass.
