Colony Concert Series returns in August with special guest Corey Shields. Check out Corey's recent performance on NPR's Mountain Stage at www.coreyshieldsmusic.com. Coming from Parkersburg, West Virginia, Corey Shields is a singer/songwriter who pens songs about life, love, meaning, and all of the moments that arise during our pursuit of these things. After a successful year supporting his debut album, "Only Questions," Corey has returned with his follow-up, "Antioch Road." A sweeping and, at times, harsh look into the personal life of a man finding balance among the things he loves. With help from fellow musicians and friends, Corey's songs have grown and matured into a space between Americana and folk music.
