Shiloh is a local country and western performer and has a performing career of more than a decade. She started as a second grader in her elementary school’s talent show and has since been involved in numerous fairs, cowboy gatherings, fund-raising benefits, and private parties.
Shiloh has more than 200 songs in her repertoire ranging from classic country, and western, to a little bit of modern country and classic rock.
Through music and performing, Shiloh has dedicated time to numerous fund-raising benefits such as Relay for life, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, the Idaho Outfitters and Guides Association and many food banks in her area. She has also had the honor of singing the National Anthem at many sporting events including the NAIA World Series and other venues.
She has had the pleasure of opening shows for several big names including Taylor Hicks and Sawyer Brown. With more than 500 performances under her belt, Shiloh manages to balance life as a mother and wife while on the road and is supported and cheered on by her husband and son as well as the rest of her family.
Within the last few years, she has recorded her second CD called “Going Nowhere,” and has been to Tennessee where she took home second place in the Mountain Soul vocal competition. More recently, she has been performing with a backup band “Shiloh and the Young Guns” to advance her career and add versatility to her shows. The Young Guns band members consist of Daniel Tate on the Lead guitar, Nick Wright on the drums and Kaitlin Geier singing harmonies.
Shiloh and the Young Guns will perform at the Fair on Thursday evening at the Fair. They will fill the spot held by the “Two Minute Talent Show” the last few years.
