2012 Summer Concert Series: The Shaw Brothers
Presented by Maudslay Arts Center
July 8, 2012
Rick and Ron Shaw, professionally known as The Shaw Brothers, have been performing together for more than 50 years. During that time, they were also members of such successful musical acts as The Brandywine Singers, The Hillside Singers (who recorded the smash hit “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing” – also known as the “Coca-Cola song”), and The Pozo Seco Singers. As such, they have recorded more than a dozen albums for such labels as RCA Records, Columbia Records, Metromedia Records, Mainstream Records, Joy Records, Diplomat Records, and their own label, Brandywine Records. Their newest recordings may be found on Folk Era Records.
Accompanying themselves on a variety of instruments, The Shaw Brothers serve up their own unique blend of traditional and contemporary music interspersed with humor, poems and stories. With their delightful wit and easy charm, they establish a quick rapport with audiences of all ages. The result is entertainment at its best.
