Shannon McMahon is known in Easton as Library Assistant Shannon Bruchal, but she’s also an accomplished singer/songwriter who has recorded two CDs. Don’t miss this chance to hear her contemporary folk songs and rich vocals live at Greiser’s! 

Shannon’s music resonates with a strong sense of the human experience. She got her first guitar at the age of nine, and wrote her first song when she was 10 years old. She started performing publicly when she was 12, at church, coffeehouses and other functions. At the age of 17, Shannon auditioned for and was accepted into a vocal performance class at the New School, in New York City, taught by Brown Bradley.

In 1996, Shannon recorded her debut CD, “Some of My Years,” an independent release that features 12 original songs in a contemporary folk style with a hint of country flavor. Her warm, earnest voice is reminiscent of Joan Baez and Natalie Merchant.

Since 2008, Shannon has also been performing daily for worldwide audiences in Second Life. She was chosen as a finalist for the CT Folk Fest for 2015, and was also selected as an alternate for the 2015 CT Folk songwriting contest. Her music is available on Apple Music, Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio, and CDBaby.

“Wishing On Planes,” Shannon’s new album was recorded with Paul Opalach at Long Hill Recording Studios and is for sale at Greiser’s.
