Oshawa born, Winnipeg based country/ folk musician spends most of his year on the road singing about  whiskey and  heartbreak, but his path has never lead him to Lethbridge until this week when he plays the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Nov. 21.
 Sean Burns comes to Lethbridge, Nov. 21. Photo SubmittedHe will be playing as a duo with Winnipeg guitarist/ steel guitarist Kris Ulrich.

“ We’re going to play the music from a new EP we just released together and music from my last album  (“ Cold Beans & Broken Eggs.”) and sprinkle in a few covers,” he said.

“We‘re really  proud of it (the EP),” he said.

“ There's six tunes on it. Half of them are upbeat country rock that I do and the other are more folky singer songwriter stuff. It really represents what we do live,” he said.
“ Kris and I love working together,” he said.

 He met Kris  shortly after  moving to Winnipeg a year ago.
“He was playing in the band of a friend of mine Sol James who plays soul and R and B and pop music. He was playing guitar and he's a great player so we started playing together,” he said.

He said the move to Winnipeg was a good one.
“ Winnipeg has a great music scene There's lots of gigs for people who do what I do. I’ve made a  lot of friends and I met a lady here,” he said.


“ And I met Kris here, so it was really beneficial,” he said adding because he is usually on the road, he doesn’t spend a lot of time  there.

“ Most of the time I’m here is in the winter, which is the hardest time to be here,” he said.
 He is looking forward to his first visit to Lethbridge.
“I’ve played everywhere else in Alberta, but never Lethbridge. But it’s a great little room we’re playing. And a lot of friends hang out in Lethbridge and speak pretty highly of it,” he said.

“I am looking forward to it.  It’s exciting to play some place we’ve never played before. So I hope people will come out and listen to us and if they like what we hear, we have stuff at the merch table for them,” he said.
“ Hopefully we can add Lethbridge to the rotation.”

The show begins at 9 p.m., There is no cover for the show.
