It’s been 30 years since the Cowboy
Junkies led by siblings Margo, Michael and Peter Timmins on vocals,
guitar and drums respectively, plus Alan Anton on bass —performed their first
gigs at various Toronto clubs. For three decades, 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.
Joined by multi-instrumentalist Jeff Bird, the core Cowboy
quartet returns to Monmouth for a retrospective of their three decades playing
(and listening to) all manifestations of popular music. Expect an evening that
runs the gamut from the folky intimacy of the band’s earliest efforts, to an
always surprising selection of covers (Springsteen, Stones, Talking Heads, The
Cure) — although to be sure, simply delivering “the expected” has never been
part of the Cowboy Junkies playbook.
