It is always a pleasure to see Toronto area songwriter Sarah Burton play in Lethbridge because it is invariably a different show each time.Sarah Burton and Darcy Windover. Photo by Richard Amery

 She brought Darcy Windover to the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Aug. 30 the duo entertained a good sized audience of approximately 20 people which expanded to about 50 by the end of the first set.

 They took turns singing lead and harmonizing on each other’s songs.
 Burton played a few new more jazz tinged songs on piano, though most of their songs were  in a more country and folk vein. She added extra percussion with a tambourine attached to her ankle.

 They also sang a couple of songs from their alt country band the Ole Fashioned.
 Windover played a few straight to the point harp solos and played tasteful solos on electric guitar.

His songs were dark and mournful, though one of the more upbeat numbers “Friend,” from the new Ole Fashioned CD, was an entertaining tale about being a traveling musician and not having anywhere to stay. A song Windover wrote about his father‘s battle with cancer, called “Open The Door,” was a touching highlight.

 Burton’s songs are always highlights. She sang an upbeat number “I Don’t Love You,” which sounded like she still did love the person in question and ended their first set.
