Unity College Centre for the Performing Arts, 42 Depot St., will present award-winning singer/songwriter Ian Sherwood Thursday, June 3 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10.

Sherwood mixes catchy melodies and heart-breaking stories with intricate guitar loops, saxophones and pop/rock/jazz grooves to create music that has been described as traditional singer/songwriter style at its essence. He is equally at home in front of a large festival audience or a quiet house concert. His energetic stage show, honest presentation and songs as romantic as they are clever and snarky have quickly gained him recognition as a solid performer, lyricist and player and garnered him Music Nova Scotia’s 2008 Musician of the Year award.
