Sean Burns is playing a lot in Lethbridge recently in support of his new CD “Lost Country: Music for Taverns, Bars , and Honky Tonks.
 He played three times this week, at the Owl Acoustic Lounge on Thursday, April12 and at Casino Lethbridge  April 13 and 14.

 I caught the most excellent first set on Friday, and despite being Friday the 13 it was lucky I did with so much happening on the weekend.

The Winnipeg musician was in his element on stage as he had a good sized crowd listening and a good number of them two stepping the night away to a variety of classic country as well as several tracks from his new CD.
 He brought fellow Winnipeger Grant Siemens with him to play tasteful leads. They were backed by local musicians ‘Skinny’ Dyck on steel guitar,  drummer Tyler Bird and bassist Paul Holden.

 They opened with a couple of capable covers of Bob Dylan’ ‘ Be My Baby Tonight’ and well worn cover of Johnny Cash’s “ Folsom Prison Blues,” plus country classic “Luckenbach , Texas” and “ The Streets of Bakersfield.”
 They sprinkled a few originals form the new Cd which fit into the set perfectly including “Lonesome Again” and ‘Farewell Parties,” which Burns laughingly described as a ‘belly rubber.’
They wound up their tight, first set with another country classic “Swinging Doors.”
