Shawn Klush
Elvis Tribute Artist
“The Closest Thing to the King in Concert”

 The Crawfordsville Strawberry Festival is proud to welcome back to our stage one of the greatest Elvis Presley tribute artists of all time, Shawn Klush.  You have to experience his performance to truly understand why he is regarded as the best Elvis tribute performer.

 Born and raised in the small coal mining town of Pittston, PA, Shawn’s love of music led him to begin imitating his musical idol.  After winning a contest in Montreal, he went on to star in the world famous Las Vegas “Legends in Concert” show where he performed for many years.  Each January he stars in the “Elvis Birthday Tribute Tour” in major venues in multiple cities.  Over the years he has won numerous Elvis contests throughout the country and abroad.

 In addition to releasing 5 CDs and appearing on the Late Show with David Letterman, he’s also an accomplished actor.  He portrayed Elvis in the hit TV miniseries “Shake, Rattle and Roll” which aired on CBS and VH1.  His latest Elvin portrayal was in the HBO series called “Vinyl” produced by Martin Scorsese and Mic Jagger.

 One of his proudest moments was being selected as the first ever “Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist” by Elvis Presley Enterprises in Memphis, TN on the 30th anniversary of Elvis’ passing.

 This is one performance you can’t miss if you enjoy the many great songs that Elvis recorded over his career.  He was truly the “King” and Shawn Klush is the “Closest Thing to the King in Concert”.  Show time is 8:30pm.  Plan to arrive early with your lawn chair to get a good seat.  As with all of the entertainment at our festival, the cost of admission to this unforgettable performance is FREE.
