“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

NEWS SPLASH

Check out this new project I’ve been working on! Sharkey McEwen (me!) and my young teenage son Ben McEwen (Ben!) are doing our first full-length show at The Towne Crier in a few weeks! It’s the Salon Series, on Friday, November 3, 2017 at 7pm.

Ben, who just turned 14 and just started high school, continues to inspire us with his rapidly developing guitar skills. A natural father and son chemistry, plus a shared affinity for the guitar and musical genres has led to this sparkling new entity to be born.

Sharkey (me!) & The Sparks (Ben!) will be doing mostly covers spanning back to the 60’s, and we’re hoping that a few Sharkey originals will be débuted as well!

So, this is our humble DEBUT!

We are =really= excited!

Please come & join us for this new adventure!

It’s a FREE show!
