Pick Of The Day: Dave Lang & Twin Otters

Born in Moose Jaw, Dave Lang was a fixture on the Saskatchewan music scene a decade or so ago. He’s since decamped to warmer climes on the west coast. Tonight, he’s in town to play a show at the SCES Club that’s being presented by Grassroots Regina.

Throughout his career Lang’s explored the genres of country, folk, jazz and roots rock. On this tour, and on an album or three before this, he’s teamed up with a couple of  University of Victoria music grads Jeff Poynter (clarinet) and Alex Rempel (string bass) to explore the genre of western swing jazz.

Tonight’s show should get going at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15. To give you a taste of what it will be like here’s the trio playing “I Lost My Gal In The Yukon”:
