Williamson Weekend: 5 Happenings This Weekend

1. Louis York and the Shindellas

WHAT: Louis York is the musical creation of Claude Kelly and Chuck Harmony, who’ve worked with everyone from Celine Dion and Michael Jackson to Ne-Yo, Rihanna, Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, and Bruno Mars; their music is not one genre. Or influence. Or thought. It’s an exploration of it all. When stepping behind the mic for the first time in their careers, the Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer threw out every rule the business has told them to follow. It doesn’t matter how long, how many transitions or how many genres. Kelly and Harmony found themselves searching for one thing, and one thing alone – GREAT ART.

The Franklin residents are bringing their last show of the year to the Franklin Theatre and bringing some Christmas cheer. Watch our interview with Louis York and learn more about the show.
