Cowboy Junkies Schedule
Canadian band the Cowboy Junkies are a hybrid alternative band that blends folk, country
and blues. Theyhave been on the music scene for three decades and still have their original members intact. Guitarist for
the band, Michael Timmins, said the band has been composing more music now than ever. "Our problem isn't a dearth of ideas,
but rather a surplus," Michael said. "For the first time, we are completely free of any recording contracts and obligations.
We find ourselves writing and recording more than we have in years, our studio feels more and more like home, and the band
now has twenty-five years under the hood and is sounding so darn good."
Darn good, indeed! The hitmakers of songs like
"Sweet Jane" and "Southern Rain" are back on tour taking stages at places like the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, California;
and the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, California. To stay on top of all of the Cowboy Junkies' scheduled concerts,

Cowboy Junkies Background
It all started in a garage back in 1985 when Peter Timmins (drums), Alan Anton (bassist)
and Michael Timmins (guitar) started jamming together. But, they still had one thing missing... a vocal leader. Enter Margo
Timmins. "I never wanted to be a musician, but one day Mike asked me to sing. I said yes, but only if I didn't have to do
it in front of the other guys. So I sang with Mike for a couple of days, and then he asked, 'Um, do you think it'd be OK if
we brought the other guys in now? I said, 'Well, OK. I guess so. I mean, if we have to." The band made their premiere with
1986's Whites Off Earth Now!!Indolent and mesmerizing, their initial effort unveiled Michael's enthrallment with Lightnin'
Hopkins, Robert Johnson and other inspirational blues musicians. To support the album, the band traveled around the Southern
and Southwestern parts of the U.S., taking in the tunes of Jimmie Rodgers, Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams, which influenced
their sophomore effort. In 1988, the Cowboy Junkies dropped The Trinity Session. Eventually, this album was reissued by RCA
Records and catapulted the band into instant stardom. The album also helped them become recognized for their role in the Americana
movement. The albums that followed included: The Caution Horses (199); Pale Sun, Crescent Moon (1993); and Lay It Down (1996).
The latter included "A Common Disaster," which landed in the Top 20 and garnered the band a gold record. The band's other
subsequent albums included: Open (2001) and One Soul Now (2004). A year later, Early 21st Century Blues arrived, which consisted
of cover songs. Rolling Stone declared, "closely revisits the career-making Trinity - hushed guitars, brushed drums and Margo
Timmins' husky moans. It all adds up to a concept album about war that screams with a whisper." The Cowboy Junkies released
At The End of Paths Taken in 2007. To celebrate their 20th anniversary of The Trinity Session, the band went back to the site
of the original recording. At the Church of the Holy Trinity in Toronto, they generated new renditions of its tunes, featuring
help from Vic Chesnutt, Ryan Adams and Natalie Merchant. Their efforts culminated into Trinity Session Revisited, which dropped
in early 2008 to critical acclaim.
