February 21, 2012 (Girdwood, Alaska) –Shannon McNally and Hot Sauce returns to Alaska after falling in love with the last frontier last winter. The band is scheduled to play three nights at the Sitzmark Bar & Grill, March 8, 9 and 10. The show is at 10:00 PM and tickets are $10 in advance and $15 day of show.
As described by Jim Farber, New York Daily News, “Shannon McNally has a whiff of the Wild West in her voice. Full and rustic, McNally’s vocals conjure the kind of rough and open spaces that make her an alt-country natural.”
Shannon McNally released Western Ballad in 2011 to strong reviews. The album’s title track was written by Allen Ginsberg. McNally, who co-wrote most of the remaining songs with producer and longtime collaborator Mark Bingham, characterizes the record as “psychedelic Americana. I knew that working with Mark, (known for being fearless with his music) I couldn’t scare him. I could go out as far as I wanted, and he’s going to be out even further.” Western Ballard became a wayfaring spiritual record, or a spirit-record according to McNally -- driven by her sultry, mellow voice.
McNally is currently on tour with her band Hot Sauce featuring Eric Deaton on guitar (a disciple of RL Burnside and Junior Kimbrough), Wallace Lester on drums, Jamison Hollister on pedal steel, mandolin and violin, and Greg Spradlin on bass and background vocals. At the same time, she has a new project called Luther Dickinson and The Wandering. The band is releasing their first album on May 8, 2012 and will be on the road for the month of May including a stop at the fifth annual Delfest in Cumberland, Maryland. The band consists of Shannon, Amy LaVere, Valerie June, Sharde Thomas and Luther Dickinson.
