Enjoy free live music and rotating art exhibits in a cozy setting! The Towne Crier is pleased to present Sharkey The Sparks, 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 teenage son, and occasional guests.Riding a wave of inspiration, Sharkey stepped out and began performing solo in the spring of 2016. This provided him more space to stretch out musically and to share his pure and soulful singing voice with us all. Around the same time, Sharkey and Ben began playing music together for fun. But once Sharkey started inviting his talented young protégé to join him on stage and perform in public, the “sparks” began to fly.Sharkey & The Sparks play mutually beloved covers from the '60s, '70s and '80s. Ben also generously grants Sharkey the freedom to perform material his dad likes from the past few decades, as well. And the set also contains a handful of Sharkey’s original songs mixed in.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.
