Sarah Cripps makes an impression in Lethbridge debut

E-mail Print PDF

 Over at the Owl Acoustic Lounge  it was time for some country tinged fun with Sarah Cripps, Feb. 16. It is always a pleasure to hear a  musician you just know is going to end up going places. Cripps was fantastic  as she sang an array of covers and original songs in her big, Sarah Cripps and Chad Walsh. Photo by Richard Amerystrong, resonant  voice which was a mix of Alannah Myles and Kathleen Edwards.

She had a good sized crowd cheering for her as she tossed her red hair to and fro while dancing by herself and with her guitarist  Chad Walsh who added excellent vocal harmonies and tasteful solos which fit the songs just right.

She played a countryish song she co-wrote with I Mother  Earth Vocalist Brian Byrne and added a few covers by the likes of Fleetwood Mac and Neil Young and even a  capable version of  “All Along the Watchtower,” before exclaiming “ I want to live in Lethbridge” then ending her set by getting everyone singing along with “Wagon Wheel.”

 She was called back for one more song— a pretty version of Leonard Cohen’s  well covered classic “ Hallelujah.”
