RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- For more than 20 years, the Cowboy Junkies have created a critically acclaimed body of original work that has endeared them to an audience unwavering in its loyalty.
The Canadian alternative country/blues/folk rock band has sold more than four million records, and their past performances at The Ridgefield Playhouse filled the house.
Their next show will take place at 8 p.m. Sunday during their "Blowin’ and Driftin’" 13th anniversary tour celebrating the release of "Notes Falling Slow."
The night will showcase their classic folk, rock, and country songs, including their most famous single, The Velvet Underground's "Sweet Jane" along with "Blue Moon Revisited (Song for Elvis)", which is both a cover and an original.
The Cowboy Junkies were formed in Toronto in 1985 after guitarist and songwriter Michael Timmins and longtime friend and musical partner, bassist Alan Anton, recruited Michael’s sister, singer Margo Timmins and brother, drummer Peter Timmins to join them.
Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams, Jimmie Rodgers and others, have provided the inspiration for the band’s music. The Cowboy Junkies have remained true to their unique artistic vision and to the introspective, quiet intensity that is their musical signature, creating a critically acclaimed body of original work that has endeared them to an audience unwavering in its loyalty.
