Shawn Taylor, Brian Dolzani play Best Video Fri., Apr. 29

Singer-songwriters Shawn Taylor and Brian Dolzani play sets at Best Video Film & Cultural Center Fri., Apr. 29. The show starts at 7 PM and the cover is $10.

This is an indoor show so proof of vaccination is required to enter and masks are required.

With a thumping thumb, dancing fingers, wailing harp, deep, gritty, soul stirring vocals and poetic blue collar lyrics, Shawn Taylor’s songs ooze American roots; wandering roots. He’s drawn comparisons from Tom Waites to Ray Lamontagne, Bruce Springsteen to Chris Smither, but his original songs are colored by the experiences of his own working class, wandering roots. He’s been an oysterman, carpenter, hitchhiker, homeowner, familly man, Appalachian Trail ‘thru-hiker’ and a performing musician and song writer, for over twenty years.

Brian Dolzani is a classic troubadour in the lineage of Dylan, Petty, Browne, and Young, and he has put his years of songwriting experience into his latest record, “A Place That I Can Feel.” With his split of Northern-bred and Southern-heart, Brian is consistently on the road, from New England, up and down the east coast, to Nashville, the Midwest, and Texas, hitting many prime Americana venues, listening rooms, and record store in-stores along the way, widening the reach of his highly personal songs and engaging live performances.
