NxNE Mini Review – Belle Starr (June 14 – Dakota Tavern)

Night 2 of NxNE.

I made my way to The Dakota Tavern who typically have great NxNE showcases, and last night was no exception: artists on the bill included Belle Starr, Tia Brazda, Michael Rault and The Elwins.

First up was Belle Starr. 3 super cute ladies. 3 fiddles. Some tap dancing.

Sold.

What I didn’t know was that theirs was a set made up entirely of covers. Great covers including two of my favourite songs: Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’ and Talking Heads’ ‘This Must Be The Place’…but I loved their voices and sound so so so much that I was hoping for some original tunes. Maybe next time.

Rating 4/5 (I would’ve given them a 5 but for the striclty covers situation – LOVED them)
