Chris Carmichael makes blues instrumentals sing

I didn’t want to miss an excellent set of mostly instrumental blues at the Slice, with Winnipeg’s Chris Carmichael, Nov. 20.Chris Carmichael returned to the Slice, Nov. 20. Photo by Richard Amery

 I caught the tail end of a revamped Blues Sensashun featuring Shawna Romolliwa, who were opening the show.

 Romolliwa sounded great as she sang a beautiful set of upbeat blues. David Renter sat behind the keyboard  and played several tasteful saxophone solos.

Former Perpetrators member Chris Carmichael and his trio began their first set around 11 p.m. with  a couple tasteful bluesy instrumentals.

He dug in and played tasteful leads, his face fixed in an aura of concentration while 

Then he played and sang a couple of songs from his CD, which were more alternative country. But he shone on his instrumentals and ended his first set with a country tinged Duane Eddy style instrumental.
