A special tribute to Eva Cassidy featuring Shawna Corder along with Any Carlson (violin and guitar), Tom Carroll (guitar), Doug Richeson (bass), and Louis Tsamous (drums).

Eva Cassidy was an American vocalist and guitarist known for her interpretations of jazz, blues, folk, gospel, country, rock, and pop classics. In 1992, she released her first album, The Other Side, a set of duets with go-go musician Chuck Brown, followed by the 1996 live solo album titled Live at Blues Alley. Although she had been honored by the Washington Area Music Association, she was virtually unknown outside her native Washington, DC. She died of melanoma in 1996. Her album Songbird featuring her rendition of “Over the Rainbow” went platinum posthumously.

An unforgettable evening, Shawna’s performance of Eva Cassidy’s music is truly captivating.
