Sean Burns brings the twang to Casino Lethbridge again


Sean Burns always puts on a good show when he comes to Lethbridge, which happens every few months.

 He played a successful weekend at Casino Lethbridge, Jan. 24 and 25. So I made a point of catching his last set on Friday, Jan 24.

 He was Sean Burns returned to Casino Lethbridge, Jan. 24 and 25. Photo by Richard Amerybacked by a crack team of hired guns, Skinny Dyck on pedal steel guitar, drummer Tyler Bird and upright bassist Paul Holden.

 He has a solid catalogue of original music, but was sticking to popular country classics by folks like Porter Wagoner to get the two steppers out on the floor.

He was also digging deep as I didn’t recognize a couple of them. But there was a lot of twang, and Skinny Dyck played plenty of twangy leads on steel guitar.

 Burns wound things down  by breaking out the harp for an impassioned version of Bob Dylan”s “You Ain’t Going Nowhere.”
