Blues and Americana star Shannon McNally headlines the second Levitt AMP Whitesburg Music Series show on Thursday, June 7. The Seth Ferguson Experience opens the show at 6pm.
McNally has opened for musical icons like Stevie Nicks and Ryan Adams, played at high-profile festivals such as the New Orleans Jazz Fest and toured alongside acclaimed artists such as Tara Maclean, Kendall Payne and Amy Correia. “Banshee Moan,” off her 2017 album, Black Irish, reached Alternative Root’s #4 Song of the Week last June and she has earned praise in prominent publications ranging from The New York Times, to the Austin Chronicle, to the online roots music journal No Depression.
