Kimberley MacGregor and Elliott Thomas return to Lethbridge

I arrived in the middle of a long set break at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, May 11 where Edmontonians Kimberley MacGregor and Elliott Thomas were playing a songwriters in the round show with local musicians Ryan Phillips and Burning Bridge.

 They were pretty much done, as the audience started to trickle away, but they played a special encore, playing a couple of songs each. Elliott Thomas played some deadly lap steel slide guitar, singing a touching version of Neil Young‘s “Long My You Run.”

 Kimberley macGregor brandished her beautiful red electric guitar and belted out a hair raisingly beautifully bluesy version of a song I think was called “So Many Ways You Done Me Wrong.”

 Ryan Phillips of the Silkstones followed that with a slower, acoustic number, to which Thomas added subtle slide guitar.

 Steve Foord also stayed in a the mellower mood for his song.

Elliott Thomas wound down the second set with another big, bluesy number and more powerful , electrified lap steel.

Kimberley MacGregor brought the show to a close with a rousing version of my favourite Kimberley MacGregor song “Trouble.”
