This Thursday, Frank Pagliaro will bring his talents to Greiser’s front porch as the third act in our Acoustic Solos & Small Bites summer music series.

Frank chose Bastille Day for his show date, and though his songlist is an eclectic mix of all-English old-timey, 1920s, folk, soft rock, country, and Beatles tunes, he promises there will be something in store for the Francophiles among us!

Shannon McMahon is known in Easton as our Library Assistant, Shannon Bruchal, but she’s also an accomplished singer/songwriter who has recorded two CDs. Don’t miss this chance to hear her contemporary folk songs and rich vocals live at Greiser’s!

Shannon’s music resonates with a strong sense of the human experience. She got her first guitar at the age of nine, and wrote her first song when she was ten years old.

In 1996, Shannon recorded her debut CD, Some of My Years, an independent release that features 12 original songs in a contemporary folk style with a hint of country flavor. Her warm, earnest voice is reminiscent of Joan Baez and Natalie Merchant.

Since 2008, Shannon has also been performing daily for worldwide audiences in Second Life.
