Bill Mallonee in concert at SHoP

Sunday August 26th
7:00 – 8:00 pm

Join us at SHoP for an intimate evening of music with incomparable Bill Mallonee. Listed at 65 in Paste Music Magazine’s “100 Greatest Living Songwriters” poll, Mallonee has been described as “…the best folk-rock act nobody’s every heard of… (Billboard Magazine).” Known initially as the lyrical/musical force behind the critically-acclaimed Vigilantes of Love out of Athens in 1990, Bill has performed with the likes of Emmylou Harris, Buddy Miller, Mark Heard, Bruce Cockburn, and Peter Case. In 2001, V.O.L. disbanded and Bill hit the road as a solo-act, writing and performing songs of the American folk vein that evoke the spirit of Woody Guthrie that resonate with the sensibilities of a generation raised on guitar rock. He’ll be performing with his wife, keyboardist and vocalist, Muriah Rose. A $10 dollar suggested donation is requested to support this SHoP event.
