This past Saturday, a full house at the Westboro Masonic Hall was privileged to listen to beautiful voices singing well-crafted songs, accompanied by superlative guitar lines and virtuoso mandolin.
The Spirit of Rasputin’s presented Juno award winner Jenny Whiteley January 15th, to a sellout crowd at our new venue. There she lived up to the hype and then some. We who had hyped her were grateful for this, though not surprised. Accompanied by husband Joey Wright (armed with a tasteful array of FX pedals) on electric guitar and mandolin, the duo held the room for two full sets of music, ranging from country, to bluegrass, to something else altogether. And that something else was very, very special indeed.
All told it was yet another memorable chapter in the Spirit of Rasputin’s Concert Series, and a perfect reminder of why we do what we do.
