Silver Bridget at Farmhouse Tap & Grill June 17, 2019   Leave a comment



I had a great time seeing music a week ago Monday at The Farmhouse Tap & Grill. The show was scheduled from 7-9 and I had to work until 7:30. I got out quickly and drove downtown. I got parked close by and walked into the lovely outside deck. I found a seat near the band and began to listen.

Silver Bridget played as a trio and their instrumental takes on classic songs were as delightful as ever. They were playing Country Roads as I got a beer, then followed with Old Man. Johnnie Day Durand gave the saw a little extra bend to wring out the notes. John Townsend strummed the acoustic guitar and kicked the drums as Matt Saraca played lead electric guitar. She Loves You followed and sounded nice, then they ended the set,

It was great to chat with them during the break, but soon it was time to discover how out of Bridget shape I’m in. The first two songs in the second set sounded very familiar but I couldn’t grasp them. I think one was a Beatles song and one might have been a Beach Boys tune. Across The Universe was easy to spot and sounded lovely. Creep had a nice dark edge to it and they followed with Over The Rainbow. I missed the next three, but thoroughly enjoyed them. We took a trip on the Blue Bayou and am reasonably sure we went Here, There, And Everywhere after that. Only Love Can Break Your Heart was achingly beautiful then they kicked into high gear for a blistering Paint It Black to close the night.

I hung out for a bit but soon, it was time to head home. It’s great to see them, but next time, I need to bring friends to help out.
