Burn Ins bring catchy new bluesy music

It has been a couple of years since Elkford B.C. based band the Burn Ins played Lethbridge, so it was great to see them  return to play the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Monday, Feb. 20 and host their open mic.Thw Burn Ins returned to Lethbridge, Feb. 20. Photo by Richard Amery
 They had a good sized, enthusiastic audience there to listen to a n Alabama Shakes cover, several brand new originals and much more.
 The trio, bassist/ vocalist Kristine Lyall, drummer Aaron Lyall and lead guitarist Aaron Lokry.

A touching number about the Highway of Tears and missing indigenous numbers was a more serious, and immediate hit with the audience.
They got the audience to sing along with a couple of the songs. And Mokry played a pretty cool  talk box solo with his guitar.

There was a lot of blues in the music with plenty of crunchy riffs and tasteful solos. Kristine Lyall had a distinctive, high pitched, nasally, twangy voice and held down a solid groove.
They had a lot of catchy numbers including a highlight “Dance Like Nobody’s Watching You.”
Another highlight was “Losing It.”
They ended their set by turning Dolly Parton’s country classic “Jolene” into a spooky alternative rock tune, with Lyall sounding like Lethbridge musician Jolene Draper.
