Music at the Market: John Sheehan

Please join us in welcoming John Sheehan at the Market from 4 to 6pm this Wednesday, October 25th.

"Shows, Festivals: Original Instrumentals/Songs"

This week, please welcome Finger Style Guitarist/Singer/Songwriter, John Sheehan, to market.

From Ringwood, NJ, John is a steadfast proponent of the solo fingerstyle guitar performance, whether it be a Festival performance, small stage, house concert, party, restaurant or pub.

John studied guitar at William Paterson College, then took to the road, playing rock, folk and country in bars and restaurants.  He realized the benefits of recording his original music and decided to release Instrumental Solo Guitar in 1995. He later recorded his second CD, Modern Man, which contains more of John's instrumentals, plus vocal ballads and clawhammer banjo tunes. Interestingly, John was a first place winner of the 1991 Candi-Creek Banjo Works Guitar Competition.

His current performances display a balance of style, taking the audience back to the Renaissance with his lute and into Appalachia with his banjo. His contemporary guitar instrumentals round out his shows with a nod to the traditions of European classical and American contemporary styles.

John brings his fingerstyle Instrumental, including Classical Guitar and Renaissance Lute, as well as Solo Classic Acoustic Folk/Rock, Blues and Rags, to corporate parties, cocktail hours, bars, outdoor parties, wedding ceremonies, art shows and more.  He also offers guitar and banjo lessons.
