Junkman’s Quire releases new EP

E-mail Print PDF

An intimate audience enjoyed the CD release party from local jazz/ folk/ celtic collective the Junkman’s Quire, Oct. 20 at the Owl Acoustic Lounge.

 I arrived in time to hear fiddle player Megan Brown playing guitar and singing lead vocals while special guest Ryland Moranz added extra banjo to a sweet version of the Pogues’ “Dirty Old Town.”

 A highlight from the album was a more jazzy number “Swing in Five” featuring Ross Samuel on saxophone.

 The Junkman’s Quire next play the Lethbridge College Cave for the Lethbridge Folk Club, Nov. 25 with John King.
