Matt Patershuk plays hypnotic show


It is always a pleasure to see Edmonton songwriter Matt Patershuk. He stopped by the Slice on Wednesday, Oct. 25 with a hot band band, too bad barely 20 people were there to see the show which featured Black Hen record company Matt Patershuk and Steve Dawson playing an intimate show at the Slice, Oct. 25.

 While I missed the first set which focused on Patershuk’s new Steve Dawson CD “The Same As I Ever Have been,” I caught the second set.

 He played a couple of tracks from the new CD including the sedate “Sparrow” which drew the show to a close around 11:30 p.m.

The second set included original music plus both blues classics like Muddy Waters’ “I Ain’t Satisfied,”  and some Sonny Boy Williamson as well as old Hank Williams.
Dawson played just about perfect solos, with never a note out of place and all designed to bring Patershuk’s big, soothing, velvety baritone voice to the forefront.

Patershuk also traded a few sweet solos with Dawson on  the blues songs.
 They brought the show to a rousing close with “That’s all Right Mama,{ which Elvis Presley popularized back in the ’50s.
