Saturday May 30th, we have a real special show at the Linsmore Tavern as we are welcoming Shawn Brady & The Northern Sons for a night of upbeat Rock! Shawn Brady is one of the most well-respected and talented musicians in Canada and definitely knows how to put on a show!
Described as “U2 with a shot of adrenaline”, Brady and the members of his band, "The Northern Sons" have performed in over 14 countries around the world. Brady and his band deliver high energy rock shows with songs that are filled with soaring melodies, heavy guitars and pounding drums. If you enjoy U2, The Killers, Muse, Snow Patrol and Foo Fighters, you are bound to enjoy the music of Shawn Brady.
With an impressive gift for crafting songs that are melodically infectious, Shawn Brady’s musicality is matched only by his insightfully deep, heart-felt and intelligent lyrical virtuosity. Brady made inroads as a recording artist with his debut album ‘Electric Blood’ (2011). Produced by Juno-nominee Cory Tetford, the album received rave reviews and airplay across Canada and the United States. His latest album, ‘Broken Traffic Lights’ (2014), is a remarkable evolution and treats the listener to song textures that embrace the dramatic potency of Muse and and The Killers, while mixing elements of 1980s darlings Ultravox, Depeche Mode, The Cure and U2.
Brady thrives in the live environment and for more than a decade he has played the part of “Bono” in the world’s most successful U2 tribute show. He has performed over a thousand shows around the world (15 countries to be exact) in front of audiences sometimes in excess of 10,000 people. All of this not only taught him some valuable lessons of stagecraft and professionalism but also in connecting with audiences on an emotional level.
The show starts at 9:30pm and there is a $5 cover charge! You don't want to miss this night, as Shawn is a true talent and has a spectacular live show!
