Ok Hamilton! It’s time to sit up and take notice.
We have some wonderful musical talent in this city. Shanya Lynn Dawson and her band Homegrown, touring in support of their latest country album, Cowgirl Up, stopped in for one night at the new and refurbished Zoetic Theatre on Concession Street.
Here is a well rehearsed and highly polished band who showed off the big stage show they provide to the major casinos in Ontario. These are talented musicians with an incredible work ethic who put together a totally professional show and are worthy of some local attention.
Shanya is a Hamilton gal from the east mountain and has been involved in the entertainment business most of her life. She has done almost everything including stints on various TV shows before gravitating to country music and concentrating on her song writing skills. This is a concert show well worth catching at every opportunity.
