Dave Crenshaw presents Color + Sound in Concert
Saturday, Aug. 6 | 7:30 p.m.
Shelby County Arts Council
Two-time Grammy award-winning artist Dave Crenshaw is performing at the Shelby County Arts Council! Dave’s album, Color + Sound, is inspired by his auditory deciphering of the harmony of color. When Dave was young, he began experiencing Synesthesia which occurs when one experiences one of the five senses through another sense. In 2020 Dave started suffering from vision loss, so he battled this downturn by creating an album that is therapeutic to those such as himself who are going through tough times.
