Playing alone onstage (aside from a handful of songs in which she was accompanied by The Sheepdog’s Sam Corbett), Terra’s powerful vocals took centre stage as she performed a variety of material, including a new song from her upcoming album, which is due next month.

Harkening back the days of ’70s southern rock, The Sheepdogs delivered a set of feel-good roots rock.

The band’s dual guitar harmonies and strong vocals tip their hat to influences like The Allman Brothers.
