Carpooling encouraged. FREE bike valet sponsored by Slime will keep an eye on your two-wheeled ride while you enjoy the show!
From the band's website:
Attend a Shawn Clark Family Band show and you’ll hear a Hank Williams, Sr. tune or an obscure Marty Robbins song. Primarily, you’ll hear Shawn Clark’s original tunes, delivered in his confident baritone.
Inspired when hearing Townes Van Zandt’s version of the Rolling Stones’ “Dead Flowers” while watching the film, The Big Lebowski, Shawn Clark thought, “I want to write music that sounds like that.” Two years later, he has two albums, a fine group of fellow musicians making up the “Shawn Clark Family Band” and his sights set on bringing this old-style country music to a wider audience.
A Texas native, Shawn Clark now calls central California home. The Shawn Clark Family Band can be found playing throughout San Luis Obispo County, drawing the attention of music promoters throughout the state and receiving radio airplay as far away as Europe.
Proceeds to benefit the Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County.
