He is currently hard at work finishing up a new album tentatively titled ‘Failing of the Light.’ He moved to Great Barrington in 2018 and is awfully happy to be coming back out of the pandemic’s forced isolation.  This evening will find Rees sharing some of what Stereo Review has called his “eye for detail and gift for absorbing narrative.”

Hip-Hop presented by Newyakcity
New Yak City a street dancer with a unique style originating from Brooklyn New York, the very birth place of street and break dance. "I learnt to dance and come up under some of the most pertinent and relevant people in the dance world, the very founders of the dance now known and recognised as ‘street dance’ which has become famous and is more regularly seen on television and aside the best musicians." I owe my life to the dance. I have great plans to continue to do good with my dance and share it’s beauty with others by way of entertainment and schooling. I was brought up under the sanctuary of the church and between throwing myself into the schooling of the dance and church I stayed away from what would have inevitably have been a disastrous end.

Rees Shad & The Convo Combo
Rees Shad made a name for himself as a wordsmith troubadour traveling the country and the world sharing his particular blend of American gothic storytelling. His albums Anderson Ohio (1994), and the Riggley Road Stories (1997) were warmly received by Americana radio and music critics around the world. He withdrew from touring in the early 2000s, choosing instead to focus more on wider ranging compositions as he recorded music for theater and film while continuing to hone his personal brand of storytelling.  Over the years, Rees’ compositions have included many songs inspired by early and mid 20th century jazz and blues.  The influence of classic American songbook writers such as Hoagy Carmichael, Willie Dixon, Robert Johnson, and Cole Porter can be heard in this work, and recently Rees began performing this material with a group he calls The Convo Combo. Together with longtime collaborator/drummer, Rob Kovacs, and bassist Jeff Link, Rees seeks to make the audience smile, tap their feet, and enjoy the many many stories he loves to share and sing. This music is nothing short of joyful and swingin’.
