Christopher Davis-Shannon reworks Brad Hinton’s “Mourning Dove” for Cover Club series
Christopher Davis-Shannon is the featured artist in Cover Club, a new weekly series series from local blog Root Down in the Shadow. The concept is spotlighting a Philadelphia musician who covers one of their peers on Monday, and showcases an original track on Thursday.
This week that spotlighted musician is Davis-Shannon, a bassist in the jazz and singer-songwriter circuit who has performed with Angel Ocana, the Kelli Campbell Trio and others. “Mourning Dove” is a grass-roots folk song by fellow local Brad Hinton, and it is organic, simple and twangy in just the right way. Root Down describes Davis-Shannon as a musician into “honoring eras past”, and “Mourning Dove” is perfect old time finger pickin’ music. Watch Root Down’s video, recorded at Break Neck Studios, below.
