Nashville's music community cares. When one of their own falls ill/passes away, always expect an outpouring of support. This was the case when Tom Shinness recently passed away. Organized by John Haring and Rusty Russell this celebration of life featured performances by Ginger Shinness, Ginger Shinness, Keb Mo, Jack Pearson, Phil Keaggy, Annie Sellick/Pat Bergeson, New North (Damien Horne/Krista Marie), Beth Garner, and supporting musicians such as Roy “Futureman” Wooten, Jim Hoke, Sarah Clanton, Katie Blomarz, Michael Morton Flute, Rusty Russell, and more.
When the benefit was first planned Tom was still living and wanted to perform. However he did not make it but was well represented by Ginger Shinness, Heather Shinness, and Jasmine Cheri Shinness.
