The Shadow Riders

Red Parka Pub, Route 302 , Glen, NH

The idea behind the Shadow Riders took root when guitarists Bruce Marshall and Chuck Farrell joined forces and formed a band in 2014. With a shared love of Southern Rock and the Blues they decided to do some shows performing the music of the Marshall Tucker Band, one of the top groups in the US in their heyday. Of particular note is the fact that lead vocalist Bruce Marshall played with Toy Caldwell, the founder, lead guitarist and primary songwriter of the original Marshall Tucker Band, in ’89 and ’90, shortly after Caldwell left the original group. This gives the band a unique insight on the music and how it was played, recorded and sold to the public.

The Shadow Riders is a name Toy Caldwell used for his backing group for a time and the title of one of his songs. Along with a new stellar 6 piece ensemble, the Shadow Riders perform hits like “Can’t You See’, “Heard it in a Love Song” and “Fire on the Mountain.” You’ll hear other popular tunes like “Take the Highway”, “This Ol Cowboy”, “Blue Ridge Mountain Sky” and some “deep cuts” as well. Marshall Tucker were known for their innovative melding of Country Blues, Southern Rock, Western Swing and Jazz. The Shadow Riders enthusiasm for this music is infectious, the stage show is engaging as they pay tribute to an iconic American Group.

Songwriter Showcase

The Hayloft at Dragonfly Barn, 95 Sanborns Grove Road, Bridgton, ME

Join Denny Breau and Bruce Marshall, two world class singer songwriter guitarists as they host this exciting new monthly series. The duo will bring talented guests to the Hayloft stage who are accomplished songwriters and performers in a wide variety of styles and instrumentation. Bruce will open then bring up the feature act. Denny will play a solo set and collaborations will frequently dominate the last set. Denny is a triple threat: a consummate picker, evocative songwriter, and a singer with a voice that is warm and inviting but completely unpretentious much like the singer himself, according to Lucky Clark. Mainers have long considered Denny a must see, but they are happy to share a favorite son with those from away. Bruce Marshall's music career spans five decades and the singer-songwriter, guitarist has been a full time musician his entire adult life. With an affinity early on for blues, rock and 60's pop, he honed his chops in the gin mills of NE and put out his first records in '87. He went to National with guitarist Toy Caldwell in '89, touring the US with Charlie Daniels and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

DWAYNE HAGGINS - www.dwaynehaggins.com

Dwayne's distinctive sound, which delivers a brand new take on the traditional country-blues and soul that he loves, has generated a rare sense of excitement and possibility throughout the area's musical community. Though always a lover of music and an appreciative listener, Dwayne himself didn't pick up a guitar until age 18. One evening he happened to turn on the Conan O'Brien show just in time to see Sturgill Simpson, a beacon of integrity in modern country music, perform his song "Living The Dream." Thanks to that well-timed moment of inspiration, the guitar soon became Dwayne's constant companion. By age 20 he was writing his own songs, and was well on the way to finding his own voice to sing them.
