JJ Shiplett performs in Terrace

Singer-songwriter and band jammed at R.E.M. Lee Theatre last weekend

JJ Shiplett performed at R.E.M. Lee Theatre on Feb. 9 as part of the Terrace Concert Series.

Hailing from Calgary, the song-writing singer played on his acoustic guitar on stage — going solo at first and later joined by his three other band members.

JJ Shiplett kept the energy up by often interacting with the crowd, encouraging them to sing along and even had the audience harmonizing to his music.

The night ended with a standing ovation and an unexpected, improvised encore that brought out drummer Nick Stecz playing on the tambourine.

The next concert at the R.E.M. Lee Theatre will be Lizzy Hoyt on March 8.
