Devon Coyote picks up his game even more for Lethbridge return

E-mail Print PDF

Kelowna based alt country musician Devon Coyote always tears it up for Lethbridge and always seems to pick up his game as he did, Wednesday, Aug. 20 at the Owl AcousDevon Coyote and Rod Anderson. Photo by Richard Amerytic Lounge for a decent sized crowd of approximately 40.

Devon Coyote alternated between playing a variety of guitars, harp and sang while his band, bassist/ banjo player D’Arcy Booth and drummer Rod Anderson were just picking up steam for their second set of the night.

Booth started off the set playing some fleet fingered banjo licks to begin a  solid set of original music and interesting covers including a laid back, folky version of “All Along the Watchtower.”

Rod Anderson played enthusiastic rhythm  on the more acoustic numbers sitting on a cajon box drum, then took a seat behind his full drum kit for the more alt country and blues numbers.

He played a catchy number about growing up on a farm outside of Kelowna, played an acoustic song about the wind then put away his acoustic guitar, picked up one of several electric guitars and turned it up a notch for a more uptempo blues infused set of alternative country music.

He switched again to a 12 string guitar, plugged it in and turned it up for a deadly slide powered song about the mad trapper of  High River. He had several people dancing for that one.

Songs like “Lost and Found” sounded like a more rootsy Soul Asylum.
 He took a seat to play some more fierce slide on a dobro and called it a night after being called back for an encore of “For What It’s Worth” and played a flute solo in it.
