A native of the Lowcountry, Shannon Tanner has been singing around Hilton Head Island for years and years.  Performing Monday through Friday at Shelter Cove Harbour, Shannon offers both family shows and adult shows each evening with the family show at 6:30 and 8:00 PM.

A year round professional singer, Shannon performs a broad mixture of popular music, country, folk, standards, and great kid's songs.  There's lots of audience interaction, and the little ones love to join Shannon on the steps of the scenic gazebo stage overlooking to waters of the harbor.

Adults will enjoy this show as much as the kids.  Shannon's excellent acoustic guitar skills combine with a powerful voice remeniscent of James Taylor or David Wilcox to produce a mesmerizing sound without the need for backing tracks or additional musicians.  Every family should enjoy this show.
