"Windsor Star CD Review"

Music Reviewer: Dalsen Chen

Peter Boyer: Northern Saloons and Community Halls - There's something very endearing about this Windsor singer songwriter's music. On the one hand, this collection of folk-country tunes is quite humble: Basic cowboy chords, plain-spoken lyrics, and Boyer's conversational, semi drawling voice. On the other hand, it's a polished presentation, with tasteful accompaniement that includes harmonica, single note electric guitar and a female back up singer. There's also ambition: Boyer encourages others top cover these songs, and he's put together a book with chord changes and lyrical explanations for that purpose. If I still had my made in Korea acoustic, I'd definitely give it a try. Email petercboyer@gmail.com
