Shirley Gnome brings musical comedy to Nelson and Ymir

Musical comedienne extraordinaire Shirley Gnome is bringing her self-styled C*untry music to Nelson and Ymir this Mother's Day weekend.

Musical comedienne Shirley Gnome plays The Special in Nelson on Saturday and Ymir Schoolhouse on Sunday.

Shirley Gnome is a self-styled musical comedian, performer, and entertainer. Singing her own brand of titillating, crass, and absurd music, she belts out original tunes about the embarrassing, profound, and hilarious adventures that happen when bodies collide.

This divine yet profane combination has found her a devoted audience, appealing to both the young and old with her shameless renderings of sex and romance. Her style deviates, from pleasantly sweet folk and tangy country, to rock, pop, and even doo-wop.

Sometimes tongue-in-cheek, other times insightful and honest, She weaves a live show that has people in hysterics – often in spite of themselves.

With her debut album Ho Down under her belt, and another released last year, Gnome continues to delight, shock, and amuse audiences wherever she can.

This year she will be performing at the Vancouver International Burlesque Festival and the Montreal Fringe Festival.

Locally Shirley will be playing at The Special (810 Silica Street) in Nelson on May 10 and will be headlining a special Dirty Mother’s Day Variety Show at the Ymir Schoolhouse at 8 p.m. on May 11.
