Dave McCann features new rhythm section

I always look forward to a Dave McCann show, but missed his first set at the Slice, Feb. 2.

They opened with “Beautiful Road” from their last album and an older highlight “ Road To Cain.” plus “Dixiebluebird.”

 But they also played some new songs. “Slow Train” was a highlight.

 McCann strummed his acoustic guitar and let Bauer handle the catchy hooks of  his numerous catchy earworms.

He switched to electric guitar for a couple of songs and a couple of new songs “Can’t Have it All” which had a Bo Diddley feel and “When The Crows Come to Carry Me Home” which I love every time I hear him play it.
