Karen Romanchuk singing new songs. Photo by Richard AmeryI haven’t heard Lethbridge folk/ country musician Karen Romanchuk play in quite a while, so I made a point of hearing her at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Feb. 14, with an intimate audience of approximately 15.

 She had a variety of new music most of which will be on an album she will record later this month with Leeroy Stagger. She alternated between new music and covers of folks like Steve Earle and Lucinda Williams, whose voice she resembles.

She played Steve Earle’s “Someday,” followed by a haunting new original song “Road.”

She also played a few older favourites like one of  my favourites “Blue, Blue Heart” from her last CD “Dance.”

 She also tackled Neil Young’s “Needle and the Damage Done” and followed it up with a great new song “Country Girl.”
 She even went a little blues with another original song.
