Guitarist Shane Dwight will wrap up this summer’s Douglas County Parks & Recreation Department 2015 GE Family Concert Series 6-8 p.m. Friday in Minden Park.
“Native Californian Shane Dwight relocated to Nashville in 2009 to further his musical career. Within six months of arriving on the scene, he swiftly attained a solid reputation as a ‘guitar slinger’ in his newly adopted hometown. Not one to completely abandon his roots, Dwight still chooses to divide his time between Nashville and his childhood ranch in Morgan Hill, Calif. Performing over 200 shows per year worldwide, Dwight has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music, including B.B. King, Etta James, Jimmie Vaughan, Taj Mahal, The Doobie Brothers, Los Lobos, Los Lonely Boys and Johnny Winter. Additionally, Dwight has performed at numerous prestigious music festivals and events around the world, counted among them the Portlang Waterfront Blues Festival, Beale Street Music Festival, Ottawa Bluesfest, Bayfront Blues Festival, Bethlehem Musikfest, the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise, as well as the Monterey Blues Festival where he was crowned winner of the ‘Battle of the Bands.’ With eight CDs and two ‘Live’ DVDs under his belt, Dwight’s music has been played on hundreds of radio stations in over 40 different countries, earning him considerable praise and accolades along the way.”
