Hugh Shacklett is a long time Sonoma County songwriter. He has 3 CD’s to his credit and his songs have been recorded by over a dozen different artists, the most notable of which would be Kate Wolf. He likes to explore less obvious themes and stories. Typical would be his song Shade. It combines the summer heat, a girl named Molly, car theft and Southern justice. Hugh’s been at this songwriting craft for over 50 years and he feels he’s just rounding into form.
