with Covid still active and new restrictions in place, we are choosing to do mini "photo reviews" for as many shows as we can this year

restrictions limit us to grabbing a few shots during the first 2 or 3 songs and then we need to be on our way

Sally

Kelowna singer/songwriter and looping artist Sally Wallick offered up an engaging mix of cover tunes and originals during her Saturday afternoon gig at Red Bird Brewing.

Wallick seemed to have the crowd with her from the very beginning of her set and all the way through. Spontaneous hoots and calling out of her name after many if not most songs, and an overall sense of fun and joy and community made it feel that Red Bird was Sally's home turf and that these were her fans. Full stop.

She is a gifted songwriter. The kind that writes songs that connect with an ease, and without affectation. The songs possess a familiarity that approaches familial, without losing their universality.

Cover tunes included a little GNR (Sweet Child Of Mine), John Denver (Country Roads), and even some Tina Turner (Simply The Best). The addition of these pop hits along with her originals allowed her to cover a lot of musical territory. Taken all together, it made for a delightful hour long set on a near perfect late spring day in the heart of Kelowna.
