Shawn Taylor & Wandering Roots
Is a four piece, mostly acoustic band, built around Shawn Taylor's original 'Wandering Roots' songs, and a mutual love for the exploration of the deep Americana Roots well. It began with Taylor's debut CD release "Wandering Roots" (2008) and has seen many incarnations along the way.
