Michael Shynes, left, and Jason Schommer, along with David Gerald Sutton, will provide guests at Linden Hill Oct. 4, with an evening of music and comedy.

Comedian Jason Schommer and singer-songwriter Michael Shynes will perform a special outdoor performance at Linden Hill Sunday, Oct. 4, at 2 p.m.

“Schommer and Shynes at Linden Hill” is an afternoon of comedy, storytelling and music. Joining them is special guest violinist David Gerald Sutton.

With the global pandemic closing performance venues and forcing shows to be canceled for most of the year, local favorites Schommer and Shynes have decided to get creative and offer a special performance of hilarious comedy, witty stories and amazing music by taking the show outside. Moving the show outdoors allows the event to safely comply with all COVID-19 restrictions and guidance and still gives audiences a much needed break to sit back, relax and spend the afternoon laughing and listening to live music.

“Schommer and Shynes at Linden Hill” is a rare opportunity to enjoy these talented performers in a stunningly beautiful location on the grounds of the historic mansions of Linden Hill!

Schommer is a standup comedian, actor, director and storyteller who spent two years as the opening act for comedy legend Louie Anderson in Las Vegas and continues to tour with Louie regularly, and has a long history of working with superstars over the years.

Shynes is a Midwest born singer songwriter with a platinum record in Poland. Being a self-taught musician from Little Falls,Shynes chased an unlikely dream and built a career out of nothing more than pure hustle and soulful songwriting.
