Cowboy Junkies

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.

Summer Encore Series: The Audience

Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren (The Queen), plays Queen Elizabeth II in the Tony Award®-winning production of The Audience. Captured live from London’s West End in 2013, the original broadcast returns to cinemas to mark National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday. For 60 years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her 12 prime ministers in a private weekly meeting. This meeting is known as The Audience. No one knows what they discuss, not even their spouses. From the old warrior Winston Churchill, to Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher and finally David Cameron, the Queen advises her prime ministers on all matters both public and personal. Through these private audiences, we see glimpses of the woman behind the crown and witness the moments that shaped a monarch.
