Performing their way through a month of January which includes 23 shows, "Windborn" brought their unique and refreshing musical art to the Lion's Head pub on Friday night.

Along with the duo (Jeff Pike, guitar, vocals, percussion, and Nils Loewen, cello) was some vocal, songwriting and guitar reinforcement in the person of Samantha Scott (an accomplished artist in her own right with several recordings to her credit) who has been part of the show since the lads met her in the Peace Country earlier this winter.

Melodic, intriguing and well executed, the material offered up by this outfit was varied and dynamic.

Based currently in Kelowna, the three artists had an afternoon gig the next day at Ellison's Market in Nelson before heading for a show at Sleep is for Sissies in Winlaw.

Scott will soon part company with the guys as she and a partner are volunteering at Wintergrass, the annual February Bluegrass Festival in Tacoma, WA. She's then got a train trip across the continent planned, while Pike and Loewen's hectic schedule will take the duo back up north for more performance dates.
