Snailhouse

Friday night we bundled up in our warmest winter gear, hopped in the car, and headed out to Wakefield, Quebec.  We were heading to the Black Sheep Inn which would be host to The Olympic Symphonium and Snailhouse for the evening.

The Olympic Symphonium of Frederickton, New Brunswick started off the evening and they were a pleasant surprise.  I have never listened to them before and they were melodic and soothing.  Definitely some similarities to Great Lake Swimmers.  With the exception of the drummer their was an active game of musical chairs going on.  The upright bass, electric, and acoustic guitars as well as the lead singer duties were shared between band members.  Two of the whom joined Mike Feuerstack on stage to complete Snailhouse.

Mike Feuerstack is Snailhouse.  He has played with a large number of musicians over the years and it certainly seems to work for him.  He played a great set at the Black Sheep with a handful of older tunes and quite a few off his latest album “Lies on the Prize” (on iTunes & Zunior!).

I managed to get a couple of photos & videos of the night.

Snailhouse opened with a quiet and haunting song called Mahogany:

One of my favourites off of “Lies on the Prize” is Tone Deaf Birds:

Check out the lovely Hagstrom guitar:

  1. What a show. Your photos look incredibly similar to mine… were you sitting on my lap, and I didn’t know it??? It was my first Snailhouse show, definitely not my last.
