The Green Guitar Folk House Presents
July 29, 2017 7pm
Main act: Flagship Romance
Opening: Gary Kirkland
Shawn Fisher and Jordyn Jackson are the Florida-based ‘Harmonic Alternative Folk’ duo Flagship Romance. Shawn’s fluent, intense acoustic guitar playing (which suggests a rock n roll background) provides the push for their beautiful harmonies. Sharing a custom-built dual microphone stand, Shawn and Jordyn deliver their material with passionate abandon, living each song as if it will be the last they will ever perform. Official Showcase artists at the 2016 and 2017 Folk Alliance International, Shawn and Jordyn have shared the stage with international acts including Half Moon Run, Iris DeMent, Mason Jennings and the Goo Goo Dolls.
Flagship Romance has aligned their musical career with the clean water cause via the organization charity: water. In August 2012, Fisher and Jackson founded and organized the Clean Water Music Fest in Florida, to raise funding and awareness for the 800 million people on this planet without access to safe, clean drinking water. Since then, they have raised over $125,000; 100% of that money is currently being used for well building and tap-stand projects in Ethiopia, Rwanda, and the Sahel region of Africa.
Some of you may know Gary Kirkland from his co-hosting days of Folk Waves on KCUR. Gary has quite a reputation in the music community of Kansas City, not just for his yodeling (proclaimed by the KC Star to be “Kansas City’s gift to yodeling”), but more for his quality writing and performing. His 2003 release, “Shootin’ The Works On Love” included nine original compositions from local and area songwriters. The Kansas City Pitch magazine has said about Gary’s recordings, “Don’t expect a Top 40 sound at all. This is real music, recorded professionally by those who know how to preserve the past as well as the future.”
