Ewan MacIntyre band play pop from Scotland

It isn’t often you get to see a band coming to the Slice all the way from Scotland. So I made a point of catching the Ewan MacIntyre band, Saturday, March 3. They weren’t what I was expecting.The Ewan MacIntyre band visited lethbridge with pop and folk music. photo by Richard Amery

I caught the last mellow song of their first  set, which featured some pretty fiddle playing before they took an extended set break as a handful of people trickled in. The trio included a fiddle player and upright  bassist backing frontman Ewan MacIntyre, playing guitar and singing.

 Instead of full force Celtic reels and traditional jigs, they mostly played laid back, more introspective singer /songwriter  material along the lines of  Paul Simon and Danny Michel plus a touch of Brit pop and rock and a little bit of jazz.

 Though midway through the set MacIntyre traded his guitar for the mandolin and a some more up tempo more traditional songs.
