“Sharkey McEwen plays with full, round, ringing tones that hang in the air
or the mind, like Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour; But he also plays earthy slide guitar
nearly as well as Sonny Landreth or Derek Trucks.” – The Daily Gazette

Sharkey & The Sparks!

Sharkey McEwen and his teenage son Ben McEwen made their debut as “Sharkey & The Sparks” in November 2017 at The Towne Crier Café in Beacon, NY before a full house of enthusiastic listeners. Their repertoire consisting of mutually beloved covers ranging from swinging surf instrumentals to modern day romantic ballads, along with Sharkey’s original songs passed with flying colors – see review.

In 2018 Sharkey & The Sparks are occasionally joined on stage by special guests, and the duo delighted fans with a surprise appearance at New York’s Falcon Ridge Folk Festival this summer performing together with The Slambovian Circus of Dreams.
