Singer/songwriter Ian Sherwood will perform Thursday, July 21 at 7:30 p.m. at the Unity College Centre for the Performing Arts, 42 Depot St.

Award-winning songwriter 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. His energetic stage show and honest presentation 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.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the door or online at unitymaine.org. Next up at Unity College Centre will be the Bb Sisters with Skip Holmes Thursday, July 28 at 7:30 p.m. ($15). For more information call 948-7469 or visit the website.
