About Shawn Waggoner
John Ailee, “Eklektikos,” 90.5 K-UT, Austin, TexasShawn Waggoner and the Tumblyweeds blend intense vocals and unique arrangements on a canvas of powerful storytelling. This Colorado-based trio consists of Shawn Waggoner (songwriting, lead vocal, acoustic guitar), David Farrell (bowed acoustic bass) and Woody Myers (acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin).The Tumblyweeds made a name for themselves in Austin, Texas, before calling Colorado home. They play their unique brand of Americana at mountain venues such as Bongo Billy’s Salida Café and The Princess in Crested Butte, as well as regional festivals such as Swallow Hill’s Folk Festival, The Denver Performing Arts Festival, the Artwalk Longmont, the Cherry Creek Arts Festival and the Taste of Colorado.
The Tumblyweeds released their fourth cd, “Cows on the Highway,” in the summer of 2006. This eclectic mix of story songs and sonic landscapes was recorded live, with no guest performances. This one is pure “Weeds.” All Tumblyweed cds, including “Songs for the FP,” “Howdy Stranger” and “Contemplating Cacti,” are available online at www.milehighmusicstore.com.
