    3:30-3:50pm: Music by ShawTime Duo

    • ShawTime Duo: Andy Shaw, a Taiwanese-American, always hoped his young son Jarvis would inherit his lifelong passion for music. In 2020 during COVID lockdown, Andy, in search of a new hobby, picked up the ukulele and played daily, teaching himself a wide range of songs. Jarvis would sit next to Andy and sing along enthusiastically, showcasing a remarkable memory for lyrics and interest in learning new songs. Quite naturally, the ShawTime Duo was born. Now 7 years old, Jarvis is in first grade and has started vocal training—and while life has largely returned to normal, the band is going strong. Both members pick songs to learn, resulting in unique, always upbeat interpretations of everything from Spongebob hits to Velvet Underground to modern pop. ShawTime Duo has performed over 20 live shows, including the Porch Stomp Festival on Governors Island. For more: @shawtimeduo
