Meet Historic West End Music Man Shableek

Shan "Shableek" Richardson has been playing the saxophone for over 30 years. He has been representing for the West End the entire time. Richardson grew up in the University Park neighborhood just off of Beatties Ford Road. Those early years of his musical development shaped him into the westside-representing showman he is today. Learn more about this westside resident's journey by reading the West End CLT blog.
