5 on Friday - Set 103

Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.

My good writing buddy/film producer Tara MacDonald/Tara MacQueen invited me to a concert last Wednesday night, hosted by In the Dead of Winter, an acoustic music festival here in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Here's a little taste of what the evening sounded like:

1 - Swing Song - Don Brownrigg

Don Brownrigg is a Newfoundland-born, Halifax-based singer-songwriter. LOVED his set.

2 - In It - Don Brownrigg

3 - Words - Shawn Colvin

She did a lot of cover tunes in Wednesday's concert. It was a really nice peek into her personal favorites list.

4 - Sunny Came Home - Shawn Colvin

5 - Hold On - Shawn Colvin

This Tom Waits cover was my favorite tune of the night.

I wish I could sing. Shawn Colvin has a wonderful voice. Some people get all the talent and the good looks.

I'm with Michael, I wish I could sing but alas I'll just have to settle for being beautiful instead!

After listening to them all I've got say that "Sunny Came Home" is my favorite of the lot though I thought she did a great job with "Words" - a song I haven't heard in ages!

Sounds - literally! - like you had a great evening out!
