Mix a little bit of country and Cajun, with a touch of rock-n-roll and blues, and you have a funky Louisiana flavor that fiddler and singer Amanda Shaw brings every time her high heels dance across a stage. Amanda's passion for her culture is evident in the diverse blend of music she creates with every note she plays. And now, she’s bringing that blend to Zeeland Street Market on Friday, October 25th!
Becoming a classically trained violinist at age four, Amanda studied music at Southeastern Louisiana University Community Music School and has mesmerized fans with locally-infused performances for nearly 20 years. As a young child, Amanda was inspired by artists like Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, and Bonnie Raitt. Similar to those artists, Amanda made a name for herself by breaking records – like becoming the youngest soloist to perform in the Baton Rouge Symphony at the tender age of eight.
Amanda's award-winning music and high-energy performances with her band, The Cute Guys, produce a unique balance of mainstream harmonies with grassroots charm. She continues to master her technique by putting a personal Louisiana twist on performances at festivals and events around the world. With regular appearances at iconic events like the French Quarter Festival and Jazz Fest, Amanda has become a crowd favorite and a festival staple.
The local artist has received dozens of awards including the Big Easy Award for Best Female Entertainer, Louisiana Music Hall of Fame Future Famer, Offbeat Magazines Best of the Beat. Amanda's world travels and opportunities for creative expression have added a deeper dimension to her music and she looks forward to sharing those experiences with her fans as she takes the stage on Friday.
