Folk Road Show stops by Owl for afternoon show with trimmed line up


The Owl Acoustic Lounge is starting to do afternoon shows. I usually can’t make them, but made a point of being there for at least one set of the Folk Road Show aka Ben Caldwell, Dominique Fricot, Olaf Caarls and Nicholas Petrovich.

 They noted their first set was going to be more folk, but they planned on turning it up in the second set. I only had the energy for the folk set and was impressed as always as the four alternated instruments every song between bass, drums, electric guitar, mandolin and keyboards. Caldwell recalled his last Lethbridge visit when the band discovered Club Didi.

 The set featured plenty of hot playing and heartfelt vocal harmonies and lyrics.
