Shannon Selig

New England Country Music Award winner for female vocalist, entertainer, and songwriter of the year, Shannon Selig is becoming known as the country star to watch. Selig’s subtle heartfelt vocals combined with a powerhouse belt have often been compared with artists such as Martina McBride and Trisha Yearwood.

At the age of 14 Selig cowrote and produced her first full-length album alongside Christian singer-songwriter Ken Medema. After the release, Selig was asked to fly to Las Vegas to perform a song written by Ken Medema for the Keller Williams Kares foundation in front of a crowd of over 7,000.

By the age of 16 Selig had performed across the United States and was given an opportunity to perform alongside award-winning actress, singer, and recording artist Liz Callaway in The Magic of Christmas with the Portland Symphony Orchestra. The show ran for 18 straight shows to a packed house of 1,800.

Soon after, Selig entered McGill University, where she studied voice performance, focusing on opera under the direct instruction of Therese Sevadjian, a French mezzo-soprano from Montreal. In 2009 she transfered to Berklee College of Music , where she is exploring a wider variety of musical styles.

Selig continues to perform at fundraisers throughout the Northeast, and she appeared at the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walk in Montreal, which drew a crowd of nearly 2,000 and raised more than $500,000 for the cause. She also returned to the stage at Merrill Auditorium, with the Marshall Tucker Band, where she performed "God Bless America" to help raise money for soldiers in need. Most recently Selig performed for a crowd of 5,000 at the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life in Gardner, Massachusetts.

Selig headed to Tennessee in March 2012 to compete internationally and is due to release her second full-length album in June of this year.

Howard Theatre
620 T Street NW
Washington DC
United States

The Flamenco Soul tour—in New York, Washington, Baltimore, and Boston—offers an up-close look at the flamenco and Latin sounds coming from Spain and the Americas. Under the direction of Javier Limón, seven-time Latin Grammy Award winner and artistic director of the Mediterranean Music Institute of Berklee in Valencia, Flamenco Soul presents a sample of the best flamenco in the world, risqué but at the same time pure, by the hands and soul of a talented, young group of Berklee students, alumni, and flamenco artists that sets the tempo of the sound of today.

This tour will be a journey: first, a glimpse of flamenco's oldest and most original styles; then an overview of its distinct paths of evolution; finally arriving at the experimental modes of today, offering a preview to flamenco's future.

This event is part of Young Flamenco Project, an initiative of SPAIN Arts & Culture and the Mediterranean Music Institute of Berklee College of Music in Valencia, Spain, to foster the musical creativity of young Spanish and Latin-American artists in the United States.
