There are also a couple other good shows on Nov. 23 including Toronto folk trio the Good Lovelies who play the Geomatic Attic, Nov. 23 with Karen Romanchuk opening the show.
 The Good Lovelies are bound and determined to get you into the Christmas spirit, though it is only November.
 Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore, aka the Good Lovelies are aptly named in more ways than one.
They  are lovely to look at and have even lovelier voices. Voices which take you back to a  simpler time — a time of innocence and easygoing jazz, a time when nothing was worth worrying about.

 Also on Nov. 23, Calgary bred, B.C. based singer songwriter Wil plays  the Owl Acoustic Lounge.

Other highlights of the week including a jazz jam with David Renter, Nov. 18 at the Slice.

 And if you want to brave the snow, The New Weather Machine hosts the open mic at the SLice tonight. And the beaches open mic has been moved to Tuesdays. Plus, a new bluegrass jam takes place at the Lethbridge Folk Club’s Wolf’s Den,  on the first and third Fridays of every month. And The Most Vocal Poets have an exceptional show on Nov. 17 with poet Ian Ferrier performing at the Slice.

Former Fred Eaglesmith guitarist Roger Marin and his band also return to Lethbridge this week with special guests , Treeline, who perform at the Slice, Nov. 19.

 Meanwhile Average Joes brings back AC DC tribute Who Made Who, Nov. 19 as well.
 And blues fans won’t want to miss the return of Chris Carmichael, Nov. 20. He will be at the Slice with Blues Sensashun and Shawna Romolliwa and David Renter.

Musaeus will perform J-P Christopher Jackson’s Episode for String Quartet, Puccini’s Crisantemi, Borodin’s String Quartet No. 2 in D Major with special guest Matthew Blackburn and Sir Edward Elgar’s  Piano Quintet in A Minor Op. 84.
