Connie Kaldor and family play sold out Folk Club show

Back in the day, in the ’90s Connie Kaldor was the first Lethbridge Folk Club show I attended. I remember her strumming an acoustic guitar for most of that show.

 So I was glad to  catch part of her sold out Lethbridge Folk Club show, Oct. 15 at the Lethbridge College Cave. It was just great to see the second sold out Folk Club show in a row,
this one was a family affair as she was accompanied by her grown children playing violin and adding operatic vocals.

 She let them show their skills in solo numbers in addition to accompanying her.
She was playing keyboards for most of the set I heard. One son sang gorgeous tenor on the operatic and apt for Lethbridge “ Let The Wind Blow Through,” which was a tough act to follow for the violinist Alex, who was still not be outdone on a beautiful bluesy version of “Ain’t No Sunshine,” which was impressive as he was simultaneously singing and playing violin.

 Kaldor told a story about touring with Stan Rogers and being inspired to sing sea shanties “which is difficult to do when you live in Saskatchewan.”

 So she talked about writing a  “She Shanty,” and ended the set with an amazing feminist anthem “ Come All You Women,” which pretty much brought the house down just in time for intermission.
