The event was winding down by the time I arrived. I long missed  John Wort Hannam’s opening set and Shaela Miller’s first set.

 But she returned as the audience started to trickle away, but getting the band to vamp their way through Patsy Cline’s “Honky Tonk Merry Go Round, which was playing over the PA system as the band returned to the stage.

They Followed that up  with some Bob Wills’ “Stay a Little longer before Shaela dug deep into her back catalogue for the rest of the set.

 Lead guitarist Jon Martin settled into a more countrified groove for the show as he is usually playing rock and roll. Meanwhile drummer Tyler Bird and bassist Paul Holden locked in.

 Shaela dug deep for older songs including the always crowd pleasing “Vicious Bitches” and  the plaintive “I Don’t Have A Friend in You.”
 She also added a couple newer songs.
