 I try to take Mondays off, but wanted to see yet another one of my long lost favourite performers as Megan Nash was playing the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Monday, Aug. 26 with Scotch & Water, some new friends she met in Hamburg while touring in Germany.Megan Nash playing the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Aug.26.

 Regina’s red headed siren Megan Nash is always a pleasure to watch and hear. She has a ragged, heartfelt, whiskey soaked voice that is immediately appealing. She played the fist set on her own and showed off some brand new music while joking  she didn’t just stand on stage and sings sad songs, but felt lucky to be able to do so.

 She played alt country / folk and dark pop with a lot of new songs about heartbreak.
 She told a story about her new dog which was influenced by Diane Keaton’s 1987 movie  Baby Boom.

 She cut her set short to make way for Scotch & Water, promising she’d be back to sing with them.
 Hamburg’s Scotch & Water played an excellent set of upbeat indie rock music, which they sung in English. 

So there were a lot of delay laden guitars. They were all multi-instruments. Bassist Samira Christmann spoke of her Iranian roots as she traded her bass for a guitar to play a song inspired by an Iranian folk song. Scotch & Water playing the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Aug.26. Photo by Richard Amery

 To make them stand out, they added some acoustic flair with a bouzouki to add some foreign flair to western style ambient indie rock.

 Nash joined them for   a few original songs and an excellent cover of  Fleetwood Mac’s “Rhiannon,” which really suited her raspy voice.
