Christian McShane performing on the West Deck.
This event has passed.
Free for all to attend.
On July 4th, he’ll be performing a selection of cover songs ranging from the 1930’s to early 2000’s.
Originally from a very small farming community in southern Wisconsin, Christian McShane has performed music around the world and currently calls Aitkin, MN home.
He’s recorded and performed with Charlie Parr, Alan Sparhawk, Haley Bonar, Paul Metzger, Mary Bue, and has shared the stage with the likes of Trampled by Turtles, Low, Pedro the Lion, Cloud Cult, A Whisper in the Noise, Martin Dosh, Kid Dakota, and many, many others.
20 years ago, Christian’s longtime girlfriend committed suicide. He found he could no longer sing the same no matter how much he tried, so he quit doing vocals of any kind during performances and instead concentrated on instrumental music. Since then, he’s scored music for 22 independent films and has recorded 7 full-length albums. Recently, as a form of therapy to help him deal with a divorce, he decided to try singing again and discovered he finally got his voice back.
