 Steve Martin eagerly looked at him for chord changes  as he thumped away at his upright bass.


 Skinny Leigh played a solid set of acoustic blues and folk music as he reminisced about  his time in Lethbridge and played a couple songs he wrote while living here.


 I arrived as he was finishing a  John Fullbright  cover.


 He blended folk with a touch of blues and a smattering of jazz.


Throughout he  played some  pretty guitar picking.


  He put on an entertaining show.
