A self-taught musician with a musical ear from outer space, Shira sings like she was born in the land of the blues, and raised in an underground jazz spot that was dropped out of a soul-filled sky! A songwriter who writes music on guitar, dulcimer, ukulele, oud & banjo, Shira has a unique take on classic songs, leaving them essentially unrecognizable – these are no typical covers. Shira is also a professional actress, performing on television, and in theater and film. She is also a recipient of the prestigious Knight Arts Award which provided her with a funding grant to build a traveling arts wagon. (babawagon.org)
