Recommendation #4
Sweetwater Music Hall

Shana Morrison and Caledonia will be taking Sweetwater by storm this Saturday.

***

Shana Morrison’s musical style has been called pop with a side of blues and a side of rock, but she has never shied away from including other ingredients, like country, R&B, and jazz into the mix. Her material is ever-changing, but what always remains the same is Shana’s unique and wide-ranging voice. The daughter of legendary Northern Irish musician Van Morrison, Shana began performing with her group Caledonia in the Bay Area in 1996. Since 2002, she has toured internationally, including numerous concert dates with her father. She has shared billing with the likes of Bonnie Raitt and John Lee Hooker, and has played for a variety of festival audiences.  Her set list always includes some of Van Morrison's greatest hits.
