Steel Wound is wound up to kick off 2019 at the first Coldstream Coffee House. The acoustic trio plays the first show of the year Saturday, Jan. 19.
Brian “McBass” McMahon is not available for this performance, so Kerry Parks and Paul Fisher will regale us with a duo show. Doors open at the Coldstream Women’s Institute Hall on Kalamalka Road and open mic signup starts at 6:30 p.m., the open mic portion starts at 7, and the feature act starts about 9. Admission is still only $5, and concession by donation.
You can also catch Steel Wound in Enderby Feb. 8 at Little City Merchant at 7 p.m.
Trading lead vocals, blending three part harmonies, chopping chords and picking a variety of strings, Steel Wound cycles through a repertoire that reaches back to the 1800s. They present thoughtful original tunes and “semi-obscure alt-roots jazzy country blues,” citing influences as varied as Fred Eaglesmith, Mississippi John Hurt, Big Bill Broonzy, Bob Dylan, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Leon Redbone and many others.
With an obvious enjoyment for the music they make, Steel Wound puts a new twist on the old tunes and make the new ones sound comfortably familiar.
