Singing duo Shade N Shannon will present a special tribute to a variety of Legendary Musicians Friday, May 9 at 7:30 p.m.  The event, which will raise funds for the Roanoke Food Bank, will take place at the Cottage Event Center on U.S.-24 in Roanoke.

The concert will feature songs made famous by a variety of artists from both country and pop music, including Sonny & Cher, The Carpenters, Johnny Cash, Roger Miller, Michael Jackson, The Big Bopper and Patsy Cline.

Shade N Shannon is made up of Shade Jonze (aka Henry Phillips) and Shannon Persinger. The popular duo sold out the venue in 2013 with a benefit for the Roanoke Public Library Building.

The Riley event will showcase Shannon singing Jazz, backed by a trio starring pianist Eric Clancy.
