Shannon Kingsbury played to a packed room of Friday, April 21st at CrossCurrents Cafe, earning a standing ovation and an encore after two mesmerizing sets of original music plus covers of songs by Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits, Colleen Peterson and others. The evening included thrilling harmonies, fascinating stories, a short poetry reading that merited its own applause, an intriguing array of mostly ancient and traditional instrumentation and a display of musicianship that audience rarely get to witness except at high-ticket events. A very charismatic Shannon Kingsbury was accompanied by equally charismatic Tricia Brubacher on ukelele and harmony vocals, as well as a couple of turns at taking the lead vocal, and Gary Diggins on a variety of instruments, including what appeared to be a seriously road-worn coronet.
