Full house for Silkstones and Kimberly MacGregor a pleasant surprise

E-mail Print PDF

It is nice to be pleasantly surprised when I go to a show.
 So I was impressed  for several reasons, Sept. 19. First, the Owl was packed, standing room only for a show, which seems to be happening more lately.Kimberly MacGregor at the Owl Acoustic Lounge. Photo by Richard Amery

 Secondly, I was blown away by Edmonton blues musician Kimberly MacGregor’s massive, dusky voice. Unfortunately I only caught the last few songs if her band’s set which attracted a lot of new fans.

 Most of whom were there for  local rock band the Silkstones, who got some attention from new Lethbridge radio station the Bridge 98.1. It’s great to see such support for local acts.

MacGregor's band played some  energetic, passionate blues music enhanced by a steel guitar.

 They followed that up with a  solid set of earnest indie-rock.
