 They played a sweet set of folk/pop music featuring lovely vocal harmonies and excellent playing, especially Matt Harrison doing double duty on box drum, guitar, violin and vocals.
 Cardinal sang with a resonant bluesy voice that was reminiscent of Bonnie Raitt with a touch of Sheryl Crow and Amanda Marshall.


 To reflect the Bonnie Raitt influence, she sang an excellent version of John Prines “Angel From Montgomery, which Raitt also covers.
 It also allowed her band mates to show off their vocal harmonies.
A cover of bob Dylan You Ain’t Going Nowhere,” also showed off their harmonies.
