The second half of the Kindersley and District Arts Council season kicked off this past weekend with the New Brunswick folk duo Tomato/Tomato, who played an entertaining show at the Norman Ritchie Community Centre.
The concert was the fifth put on by the Kindersley and District Arts Council this season.
The duo consists of John McLaggan on vocals and guitar, and his wife Lisa McLaggan on percussion, vocals and banjolele.
The couple has been together for 13 years and their chemistry shows on stage and in their catchy songs.
Tomato/Tomato are currently playing shows across Saskatchewan and performing tunes from their upcoming yet-to-be-named album for the first time live this tour.
The night also showcased the group’s fun banter and storytelling ability.
The duo put their own twist on popular covers throughout the night such as A-ha’s "Take On Me", “Ophelia” by the Band, Steve Earle’s "Baby's Just As Mean As Me" and “Cecilia” by Simon & Garfunkel.
Around 60 people came to the show which was a decent turnout for the group’s first time performing in Kindersley.
The Macklin Arts Council is also presenting Tomato/Tomato tonight at 7:30 PM at the Macklin & District Communiplex. This will be the final show hosted by the Macklin Arts Council in this series.
