Oh My Darling heat up the Slice with hot bluegrass and country licks

Oh My Darling heated up the Slice, Aug. 28 with hot playing. Photo by Richard AmeryI didn’t want to miss Oh My Darling at The Slice, Aug. 28 but I should have stayed at the Cropdusters show at Average Joes for a little longer because I ended up waiting for an hour before Oh My Darling took the stage for their second set

 But they were quickly forgiven after the first note.
 They are as pretty as they are talented and their set was no holds barred energetic country/bluegrass music.

 Fiddler Rosalyn Dennett and banjo player  Allison De Groot were locked in with each other and added beautiful vocal harmonies while Vanessa Kuzina carried the gorgeous melodies. Marie-Josee Dandeneau played some superb stand-up bass.

They played a lot of upbeat, fleet fingered original music, a  Patsy Cline cover and featured each individual musician in a solo spotlight. They also played “a work in progress” which turned out to be a fantastic a cappella number.
Then they turned Tina Turner‘s “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” into a pretty cool bluegrass tune, then were called back for an encore of a hard core bluegrass version of “Oh Suzanna” which they dedicated to departing Slice waitress Suzanne Cassell.
