Cowboy Junkies

Friday 15 May

 

An Evening with Cowboy Junkies to feature career-spanning repertoire from The Trinity Session to All That Reckoning

 

Canadian alt-country pioneers Cowboy Junkies will return to Australian and New Zealand for the first time in 20 years in May 2020.

 

Anyone who has followed Cowboy Junkies’ three-decade-long journey knows the band has always remained true to its unique artistic vision. In 1988, they proved that there was an audience waiting for something quiet, beautiful and reflective. The Trinity Session was like a whisper that cut through the noise with its introspective, quiet intensity. Their new album, All That Reckoning, once again gently shakes the listener to wake up. It may be the most powerful album Cowboy Junkies have yet recorded.

 

Formed in Toronto in 1985 with siblings Michael Timmins on guitar, Margo Timmins on vocals, Peter Timmins on drums, and Michael’s lifelong friend Alan Anton on bass, Cowboy Junkies has never had a break-up or taken a hiatus. They’ve never even endured a line-up change. The group has created a critically acclaimed body of work that has endeared them to an audience unwavering in its loyalty, and which is ripe for discovery by those who may have lost track along the way, or indeed who are new to the group’s charms. Their May 2020 tour of Australian and New Zealand will be one the undoubted highlights of the musical year.
