Blue Shaddy to give all a dose of blues

Emily AceSouth Western Times

It has been 27 years since the country, blues and rock fusion which is Blue Shaddy began with a jam session around a small kitchen table in Kellerberrin.

The tight-knit band has an electric chemistry, originally made up of singer-songwriter and guitarist Jim McClelland, his wife and bass guitarist Sandy and brother “Belly” on harmonica.

Shortly after forming, Blue Shaddy realised a move to the city was inevitable and it wasn’t long before they added drummer Dean Wuksta to the line-up.

Despite a winding road of twists and turns, children to feed and bills to pay, Blue Shaddy are committed to bring the show on the road to the Prince of Wales Hotel on July 8 from 8pm.

Blue Shaddy perform by the motto “never a dull moment”, with Sandy McClelland telling fans to expect older hits as well as a few new songs from an album coming later in the year.

“It would be great to see familiar faces and for people to come along and have a dance,” she said.

“We haven’t been to the Prince since the renovations, so were are excited to be coming back – we love the South West crowd.

“It’s been a while between drinks and the hummingbird is a coming – you locals know what we mean.”

Blue Shaddy will be joined by roots/rock support act Lightning Jack.

Tickets are available at the door.
