It’s a pretty sweet week to hear New Brunswick talent in Lethbridge. Two stripped-down, blues-flavoured shows happen this week.
Ross Neilsen plays a solo show at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Feb. 7. He is touring on two CDs, but will focus on material from “The Shack Up Sessions” which he released in 2012. There is no cover for the show, which begins at approximately 9 p.m.
Also from New Brunswick, Matt Andersen plays a show for the Geomatic Attic at Southminster United Church, Feb. 8. His latest CD “Weightless” which combines blues with a lot of R and B and soul, is hot off the presses.
Tickets are $20 for that show, which also features David Myles.
