Keelo strikes again!
James Keelaghan played the Epcore Performing Arts Centre tonight along with Oscar Lopez - together they are the Compadres.
I walked away with a copy of the new album, "Buddy, Where You Been?" (thanks, Sarah!)- something of a 10-year reunion for Keelo and Lopez.
My sister, L. was kind enough to drive AND spot another $20.00 so we could all have CDs to get signed. Last year I neglected to tell her James was in town, and um... well... it's a good thing she's my sister and loves me enough to forgive and forget, and all that...
Last year I posted here after James played Calgary on Remembrance Day. He's a Calgary native, always proud to return to a warm, home town audience. I remarked to him while he signed my CD that each of his shows always has something different, and I appreciate that.
Hola, James; hola Oscar!
Still, I'm looking forward to some day taking in a traditional Keelaghan show full of the familiar oldies but goodies.
