The Christopher-Davis Shannon Trio will play at the Darlington Arts Center on Saturday, May 7.

The concert will begin with an opening performance by Duo Festivo, a piano ensemble featuring two Darlington teaching artists, followed by the Christopher Davis-Shannon Trio at 8 p.m., according to a Darlington press release.

Davis-Shannon's music is the essence of honest simplicity.  Bringing together influences ranging from Fats Waller to Muddy Waters, the Philadelphia native creates an atmosphere that will instantly transport you back to jazz and blues clubs of the early 20th century. Not content with being called a traditionalist, he forges ahead with his own modern take on timeless classics, weaving together a sound that is enjoyed by both young and old, the release said.

A modern vagabond, Davis-Shannon has toured the world as a performer on stages from New Zealand to New Orleans, from Las Vegas to New York City.  At the young age of 29, he has had the pleasure to share the stage with such greats as Pete Seeger and Franny Beecher of Bill Haley and His Comets and is at home playing a house concert for five people or playing at a 2,500 seat theatre, according to his website.

Tickets are $15 for general admission and $10 for members and include free coffee, tea, and desserts. All Coffee House Concerts are BYOB. Advance ticket purchase is recommended by calling 610-358-3632 or ordering online at www.darlingtonarts.org.  

Other upcoming Coffee House Concerts include a rescheduled performance by Cristian Perez on Saturday, June 4. Shows will resume in the fall after a summer break.
