John Antoniuk and Jen Lane do it best with duets

E-mail Print PDF

 Saskatoon folk/ blues duo John Antoniuk and Jen Lane played  a couple of laid back sets for a chattering crowd, Tuesday, Sept. 16 at the Owl Acoustic Lounge.

They both have solid solo careers and feature each other on their albums so they each took turns playing their own songs and hJohn Antoniuk and Jen Lane playing the Owl Acoustic Lounge. Photo by Richard Ameryarmonized on the others.

But they really came together on songs from their new duo album.
 They also played a couple of covers like Ryan Adams’ “Oh My Sweet Carolina,” the song which lead to them being together for 11 years.

They also covered the bluesy JJ Cale number “Crazy Mama.”

Jen Lane had a more straight ahead twangy county sound along the lines of Lucinda Williams while Antoniuk, who supplied plenty of guitar and mournful harp solos, leaned more towards the folk end of the spectrum.


 Antoniuk noted he recorded his last solos album in 2012 in Lethbridge with Leeroy Stagger's Rebeltone Studios and dedicated his song “My Guitar is in Chicago” to Leeroy and Matthew Robinson who were in the audience and who played on his last CD.
