The Texas sky churned angrily overhead as Colter Wall graced the Big River Stage, bringing with him a cool and controlled showcase to the dreary Saturday afternoon at Two Step Inn.

Pulling songs from across his five studio albums, including his most recent effort, the 2023 released Little Songs, the Canadian balladeer delivered a truly career-spanning set while also peppering in some of the cowpunch standards he's become highly skilled at making his own.

From the beginning, he was an artist of few words, introducing himself as simply Colter, before launching into his jaunty 'Little Songs.' Each song felt brisk, strings plucking away at impossible speeds, and purposeful, the words making up more than just songs but stories, as the artist flitted from waltzes to swings and back again.

Halfway through his set is when the rain came and sent some festival-goers seeking shelter. "It's just water", the frontman called to them mid-song.

As it poured, he continued his set, keep many still enraptured with a mix of plucky tunes, like Ian Tyson's 'The Coyote & The Cowboy' and Billy Joe Shaver's 'I Been to Georgia on a Fast Train,' as well as haunting ballads, like 'Cowpoke' and the closing 'Sleeping on the Blacktop'.

It may have been a no frills show – steady and to the point, a lot like the artist himself – but it was an impressive display of musicianship all the same.
