Live Music with the Plaid Bastards feat. Shawn McCullough + Jeff Callery

December 5, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Live music is back at the Cove on Saturday December 5th from 6-9pm with “The Plaid Bastards” aka Shawn McCullough & Jeff Callery.

Shawn McCullough is a Master guitar player/singer/alternative lyricist/showman/songwriter. He has played and toured with Canadian Country star Jason McCoy (The Roadhammers) and has been a part of Telecaster supergroup The Telebastards featuring Steve Piticco, as well as a member of DoubleBack with Wade Foster and John Wilberforce. He is highly in demand as a session musician and sideman for his incredible skill, wit and stage presence. He has a solo record to his name “This is Me” and is currently performing with rising CMAO and CCMA nominated Country star Brea Lawrenson!  His latest accomplishments are a series of singles released on Apple Music and Spotify getting lots of airplay on Country Music Radio. Check out “Change”, “Canadian Soldier”, “Sidewalk”, “Never Drinking Again”…more to come.

Jeff Callery has been playing music for more than half of his life. Starting in highschool, he hit the road young and played in every bar, at every fair, festival and theater that would hire him and his bands all over the province of Ontario, Quebec and New York State.

Never afraid to put his music and performance out there for all to see and critique, Jeff has won and placed honorably in contests all over North America – both for his performance and songwriting.

In 1999 Jeff won the New York State Title for the True Value Home Hardware Country Star Search. In 2007, Jeff won the New York State Title for the Colgate Country Showdown and placed respectably in the National Semi-Finals of that same contest in West Virginia.

In 2008, Jeff had his first single cut as a songwriter by a finalist of the famed “Idol” franchise and it was included on her debut album – Tara Oram’s Chasing the Sun – Canadian Idol finalist.

He is a married father of 2. His family is his life. He is also a dedicated community volunteer and Rotarian.

When asked about his music, he says he likes to think of it somewhere between James Taylor, John Mellancamp and Canadian hit band Blue Rodeo.

“I just like to make music. Every song is about me or someone in my life. Most times I sing songs to and about the guy in the mirror. When other people can connect with those songs, it’s very satisfying because they are written from my very personal point of view.” “When that happens it reminds me that everyone is going through the same stuff – maybe at different times and with different priorities, but it binds us.”

“The songs say more about me than any bio could!” says Callery
