Sean Burns brings back classic country sounds

E-mail Print PDF

Winnipeg country musician Sean Burns returned to the Slice in fine form with hot band in hand, Friday, March 9 in support of his new aptly named CD “Lost Country: Music For Taverns, Bars and Honky Tonks.”

 But up first, Brooks born, Calgary based bluegrass/ roots trio the Wine Soaked Preachers tore things up country style with plenty of hot picking from frontman Jay B, upright bassist Miles C and drummer Mark A, all dressed in bright red cowboy shirts.

 They played an assortment of original music and country classics like Johnny Cash’s “ I’ve been Everywhere.” All three sang superb vocal harmonies together.

They played a couple brand new songs including “Green River,” which was definitely not the CCR song of the same name.

 Burns and his band including Corb Lund guitarist Grant Siemens, bassist Bern Thiessen, Drummer Joanna Miller drummer and Lethbridge Ryan “Skinny” Dyck on steel guitar played a spirited set of twangy country music focusing on songs from the new album.

 Burns sounded like Ron Tabak of Prism singing ’70s style country music.

One of many highlights was “Don’t Let the Highway Get You Lost.”
In addition to originals they also played credible covers of country classics like “Swinging doors.”
