Richard Shackan accomplished guitarist, has been performing and recording for over 30 years.  The founding member of The Case of E.T. Hooley, Richard has recorded with the legendary “Swamp Blues” artist Slim Harpo.  Richard also played with “Jump Blues” artist Jimmy Witherspoon and recorded with the hard-edged, power pop/rock band Uncle Tom on United Artists label.  Perhaps most notably, here in Cleveland, Richard was a member of The James Gang, recording with the group on the ATCO label.


While still rocking, a few years ago Richard turned his focus to songwriting.  His style is Americana with a particular bent towards the reminiscent soul of Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee.  Richard performs with his friend and harmonica virtuoso Mike Gilliand.
