Yardbirds ... Oct. 27, 2017 @ The Bull Run Shirley, MA

Yardbirds continue to hold true to the band’s legacy of masterful musicianship. Led by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer / founding member / drummer Jim McCarty, the band (consisting of guitarist Johnny A, bassist Kenny Aaronson, singer/blues harpist/percussionist Myke Scavone, and lead singer/guitarist John Idan) evoke the essence of the classic Yardbirds sound.Experiencing a Yardbirds concert is akin to a music history lesson. An integral part of the 1960s’ British Invasion, these blues-rock pioneers played a significant role in laying the groundwork for rock music. The band crafted blues-rock / psychedelic anthems For Your Love, Over Under Sideways Down, Train Kept A-Rollin’, and Heart Full Of Soul, I'm A Man, Dazed And Confused to name a few – building an undeniable legacy that still reigns strong in 2017. Tix on sale now.

About Shirley, MA
Shirley is a rural industrial town located on the lowlands of the Catacoonamaug River. A handful of colonists arrived in 1720 and settled on scattered farms throughout the town.

Early in its history Shirley was supported by its many farms and orchards. There was an increase in industrial activity around 1790 and the first paper mill was opened followed shortly after by a small iron works and nail factory.

The location of the water to power industries served to create an industrial village along the narrow valley where Shirley is located. Many of the period brick towered mills still survive and create an authentic period landscape.
