 “It reflects a lot of our influences we’ve been listening to lately,” said Clayton Linthicum taking a breather in between tours from his home in Glentworth, Saskatchewan.

“ We listen to a lot of country music from the late ’60s like  Gene Clark and Lee Hazelwood and a lot of  psychedelic music mixed with country music,” he said.
 He and compatriot Kacy Anderson will be joined  by their rhythm section of drummer Mike Silverman and bassist Andy Basil for this tour.

“ We’ve been playing a lot as a duo, so it is really exciting to  play with the band,” said Linthicum, who also plays with Deep Dark Woods when scheduling permits.
 “Kacy and Clayton are so busy. Most of our time is spent touring. But we still play with them. We’re on their latest album,” he continued.

“ The songs are shorter in Kacy and Clayton and there are fewer members than the Deep Dark Woods. We have similar influences,” he noted.

 They played South Country Fair in 2018, but haven’t played Lethbridge since 2014.

“ It’s hard to believe it’s been that long,” he said, adding people are enjoying the new CD.
“It’s been really good. There are three or four singles in rotation,” he said.

“ The CD sounds closer to what we sound like live than any  other,” he continued, adding they plan on playing the entire CD at the Geomatic Attic.

“We’re just excited to be back in Lethbridge. It has been so long,” he said, adding they will be joined by fellow Saskatchewan musician Ellen Froese, who was just in Lethbridge.

 They have a big drive ahead of them, as they are heading east to begin their tour in Winnipeg, then have a 12 some hour drive ahead of them to play Lethbridge.
 The show begins at 8 p.m.  Tickets are $20-$35.
