A singer/writer of eclectic roots-inspired songs, Shaun uses his guitar, banjo, and voice to weave tales of intrigue and epics of sorrow. Drawing heavily from the pantheon of American roots traditions, he infuses the music with contemporary influences such as Bill Frisell, Lowell George & Tom Waits.
“At the 2008 Folk Alliance Region West Conference, I overheard someone say… “Who needs three guitarists when you’ve got Shaun Cromwell”. And oh that voice! Metaphorically speaking… if there is an original first seed from which Roots Music blossomed, it currently resides in the heart, mind, soul, fingers and voice of the rhythmically intuitive world of Shaun Cromwell. To watch and hear him play is to view a Medium absorbed in the trance of conjuring the melodic essence of Mississipi John Hurt, Ry Cooder and Taj Mahal to name a few. Cromwell delivers music with the Titan passion Prometheus reserved for fire!”
-Henry Hallett: Host ‘Simple Folk’ KXCI 91.3 FM, Tucson
I got to see Shaun live for the first time at the 2009 Folk Alliance Region West Conference – I can attest to everything Henry says. Shaun’s musical prowess is spectacular, with a mix of traditional and original songs. Please come join us for an evening of guitar fireworks. You will be amazed.
