Shannon Wurst commands a stage. Born in the Ozark hills, this singer-songwriter can keen out a soulful, old-time ballad just as well as she wails on a rockabilly anthem in full-throated force and strum. Blending classic country with traditional bluegrass, Wurst’s musical arrangements effortlessly push her style into new territory. This work has landed her national attention. The timeless, roots-based songs from her latest album Sugar and Kerosene (released in Spring 2018) like “Better Than Bourbon” and “Devil and Saint” have a yearning tension that she delivers with sweet smile. “Shannon Wurst is among that rare breed who can make you sit upright and wonder aloud, ‘Who is that?’ She is unquestionably arresting” (from Sing Out Folk Music Magazine, John Lupton). Shannon Wurst, of Fayetteville, Arkansas, is a rising star who has opened for Robert Earl Keen, Railroad Earth and Carlene Carter.
