Sharkey & The Sparks


June 29, 2024
8:30 pm

The Towne Crier is pleased to welcome back Sharkey & The Sparks full-band line up, featuring Sharkey McEwen — well known to music lovers throughout the Hudson Valley and beyond as the lead guitarist of The Slambovian Circus of Dreams — Ben McEwen, Sharkey’s fabulous son, and a select group of talented musician friends. This multi-generational, multi-talented ensemble is heart-warming to behold.

Fueled by their passion for this classic era in popular music, Sharkey & The Sparks will be performing beloved tunes from the ’60s, ’70s and beyond – Beatles, Beach Boys, Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass, early Fleetwood Mac and Boz Scaggs, Dick Dale, U2, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen and more, along with S&S originals.

Sharkey & The Sparks full-band debut on The Towne Crier main stage January 2022 was a resounding success, their second show January 2023 was nearly sold out. This will be the band’s 4th performance here and we’re delighted to have them back.

With The Slambovian Circus of Dreams, Sharkey has headlined major music festivals across the US, Canada and UK. His intuitive, evocative playing is a key ingredient of the band’s magic.

“Sharkey McEwen plays with full, round, ringing tones that hang in the air or the mind, like Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour; But he also plays earthy slide guitar nearly as well as Sonny Landreth or Derek Trucks.” – The Daily Gazette

Tickets $25 advance, $30 door
