Bill Sheffield & Sandra Senn
Everything about Bill Sheffield is authentic. It’s there in the intense, transcendent way he finger picks his guitar with hints of John Hurt and Blind Blake flashing through. It’s there in his songs that wrestle with earthly pleasure and the need for redemption. And it most definitely is there in Got A Gig, Gotta Go, his 9th studio recording on American Roots Records. Journal On A Shelf, Sheffield’s release and the new Got A Gig, Gotta Go distill a lifetime pursuit of authentic American roots music that announce the arrival of one of the most significant roots musicians to emerge in the past decade.
Sandra Senn has been playing with Bill Sheffield since February of 2019. She started sitting in with Bill at the Northside Tavern and there was an immediate musical connection. The casual jam session turned into a project and has taken a life of its own. Sandra and Bill created a unique percussion setup for the show which includes an electric cajon played on its side, bongos for toms, and a splash cymbal. This setup creates a full sound and works with Bill’s original music and acoustic guitar. Recently they got the chance to perform at the WRFG Labor Day Blues Barbecue and also open for George Thorogood and the Destroyers. Sandra also plays traditional trap set drums with the blues and rock trio Leonard Blush.
