Shaov

Renowned singer Timur Shaov and his friends, musicians N. Grigoryev and M. Mahovich, present their new album “One Day of Uncle Zhora”.

Program in RUSSIAN ONLY. NO English translation available.

На концертах Шаова собирается разнородная публика, которая слушает и рок-музыку, и классику, и авторские песни.

Cейчас Тимур приезжает к нам с новой программой, которая называется «Один день дяди Жоры» и привозит одноименный компакт-диск.  Как обычно у Шаова, все эклектично – от стилизаций в духе Вертинского и Синатры, до рок-н-ролла и бардовских стандартов. Вместе с Тимуром на сцену выйдут его друзья-музыканты Михаил Махович (мандолина) и Николай Григорьев (гитара).
