Steven Foord plays new music at Owl Acoustic Lounge

E-mail Print PDF

Owl Acoustic Lounge co-oner Steven Foord  made a rare appearance on The Owl  stage, Saturday, July 30.. He was backed by drummer Brad Brouwer and bassist Paul Holden .

 

 He also played the Upside Downtown concert Series, July 28 outside Casa, but I missed that, so I was glad to have caught him at the Owl Acoustic Lounge.

 I missed an opening set by Tyson Ray Borsboom.

 

 Foord was tuning up as I arrived.

 

 It’s been a while since I saw him perform, so he had a lot of new, hypnotic, haunting, acoustic music.

 

 He started his set playing banjo on an old favourite  about zombies attacking a church called “ God‘s Not Coming.”

 

 He sang into two microphones for some of the more spooky numbers.

 

He continued in the dark gospel vein before singing a few new songs including the outstanding “Dragons of the Prairies ” about horses for which he switched to guitar.

 

 Another highlight was a new song about “the first time I administered Naxalone to a person.”

 

 Holden switched to electric bass for the last couple of songs including Foord’s haunting version of Bob Dylan’s “Masters of War.”
