Episode 35B: John Dendy

Isamu Jordan / The Spokesman-Review

A former fixture at The Shop (back when the coffee shop hosted some of the finest touring and acoustic music in the region) John Dendy easily relates with the listener with down-to-earth chats between songs. He is another one of those endeared Montana singer-songwriters that has gained a following in Spokane’s acoustic scene. Dendy breaks up his set by starting with a chunk of songs on acoustic guitar. Then about halfway through, he switched to upright bass for a few songs, and then back to acoustic guitar. During this show, the audience joined in with the beatnik-style snaps for the upright bass set. That’s never happened before, Dendy said.
