Zelda's ukulele and singing performance at our Music Row outreach for the homeless is 'absolutely freaking awesome!' She plays a bunch of beautiful songs including my favourite 'Down To The River To Pray' and she lights up the whole room with her singing and ukulele playing. I love it. Everyone here loves it.

 Zelda Sheldon - Spectacular!

Double high-fives for Zelda's show at Brookmont in Belle Meade Tennessee.

Double high-fives for Zelda's show at Brookmont in Belle Meade Tennessee.

Zelda Sheldon’s performance at our assisted living community, Homewood Residence at Brookmont Terrace, was spectacular to say the least. Not only was the talent there, but she brought great energy to the entire room! The projection, quality, and content of the music was wonderful. Zelda never quit smiling and engaging with her audience. Zelda’s vocal and ukulele show was so much more than playing music; it was an interactive performance that included every single person in the room. Before she began playing, Zelda went around the room and asked each person in the audience what their name was. She had all 20 or so memorized in about 10 minutes! This not only impressed the residents but the staff as well. I have never seen anyone connect with our residents in such a natural, loving, and genuine way. We cannot wait to have her back!

Zelda Sheldon - A Surprisingly Lovely Musical Time.

We LOVED having Zelda come and perform for us. Zelda's singing and playing was very enjoyable to all, she's so talented and nice, glad she shared with us! She took time to find out everyone's name, which was so lovely! I was so glad to get a picture of the event too. Zelda's performance was uplifting and cheerful for all residents in attendance and she played music we enjoyed. Everyone was truly delighted and we are going to request to our activity director that we definitely want her to come here for more visits! We will be happy to see her again! Soon I hope. I recommend her to any other seniors residence for a surprising lovely musical time.

Zelda Sheldon - Really Good & Fun!

Thank You Zelda for a wonderful show at Woodbine Seniors. You were REALLY good and fun, and everyone in the group enjoyed you. What particularly impressed our group was that you made an effort to ask everyone their name and remembered every single person in our group. A very nice touch. We all loved singing along to the songs you played, you were great – really great. Hope you can come back again. ~Woodbine Seniors.

Zelda Sheldon trio - Head Over Heels - what a Hit!

There are only three things that grab anybody’s attention in Nashville …

A Great Song, a Great Voice and a Great Musician.
 
A couple of weeks ago The Tennessee Songwriters Association was holding their annual showcase at The Red Rooster on Music Row and I heard all three. 

The room of high-top tables and bar stools was dimly lit, the place was busy and it was a nice evening so the patio doors were open. Periodically, throughout the course of the evening, I walked out onto the patio to have a conversation with someone, but could still hear the performers from there. I had been there since it started, it was nearing the end of the evening and I was on the patio again. 

It took me a moment to re-focus my ears in the middle of my conversation but I managed to and I immediately excused myself and flew back into the room because I knew I was hearing a “HIT” song.

The lead vocalist, TJ CARTER had “THE VOICE” … and the whole room knew it. ZELDA SHELDON’s ukulele accompaniment added a wonderful flavor, her back-up harmonies blended amazingly with TJ’s voice, their phrasing was “spot-on” and PAL SHELDON, Zelda’s husband of 31 years accompanied their performance with his hand-made, Brazilian rosewood De Gruchy acoustic guitar.

Three songwriters … three voices, one ukulele, one guitar and a “HIT song” … WOW ! The song is entitled … HEAD OVER HEELS written and performed by the Sheldon Carter Trio.

Unbelievable!  Tremendous performers! A dynamic duo!

Featured Fan Review:

I can't tell you how much of an unexpected surprise it was watching you. I knew you were great songwriters but to watch you both on stage performing together brings a whole other level to your songwriting. Unbelievable! You guys are tremendous performers - and you write these wonderful songs. 

Listening to you together was so special. They way you put your two acts together with your song arrangements and blending your intricate harmonies with playing your instruments - you complement each other in such an amazing way - it completes you. What a wonderful special relationship you two have on stage together. You are a dynamic duo!

Zelda's music and movement shows are awesome.

City of Sydney Libraries are delighted to have Zelda come and perform at our network of libraries. She has performed half a dozen times and her early childhood music and movement shows are an absolute delight. The kids love her and get so excited playing the music games and playing ukuleles and percussion and singing and doing all the actions. The parents love seeing their children interact and it's a fun, fresh music show that our libraries are proud to host.

Wow! Zelda shows how sharing is a lot of fun 

I loved watching my two children aged two and four glow with confidence playing ukulele and singing the songs in Zelda's Ukulele Baby Music floorshow. And seeing them engage with the other children and help the younger ones made me feel so proud as a mum.

Zelda's Ukulele Baby Music shows are amazing!

Zelda has performed twice for our early childhood play centre of 80 kids and both shows were amazing. After the last show we even talked about needing 'bouncers' - just like a rock concert to stop the children rushing onto the stage as the children get so excited when they see the real instruments on stage. Zelda is fantastic with the children and has a lovely way of making sure it's all under control and keeping the children on the mats in front of the stage.

Zelda's amazing 7-hour solo show impressed our corporate client so much so that they asked us to book her for four more shows for one of Sydney's premier events. The way she worked with the crowd was tremendous. We received lots of positive comments from attendees. Everyone in the audience had a great time singing along with her and she helped create a fun atmosphere for our premier event.
