Cowboy Junkies

While the Canadian-bred Cowboy Junkies are known the world over for their slow, brooding and, frankly, depressing north-of-the-border tales, every now and again they catch you off guard by plugging in and cranking up. Margo Timmons' spare vocal style has provided the necessary haunting element for the Junkies throughout their 15-plus year career, while accordion, brushes on the snare, and gently strummed acoustic guitar serve as the backbone of this quartet's dark musical identity. Their eleventh proper album, One Soul Now was released in 2004. In 2006, the Junkies released a commemorative art book to mark their 20th anniversary. The following year, they released At the End of Paths Taken.

    Year: 2007

    Runtime: 48 min

    On November 27, 1987 the Cowboy Junkies set up a single microphone inside The Church of the Holy Trinity in Toronto, Ontario and in one day recorded what would become The Trinity Session, a landmark album of originals and covers grounded in traditional country, blues, and folk, with a clear nod to The Velvet Underground. The album would go on to sell millions of copies worldwide and establish the Cowboy Junkies as one of the most influential bands of the alternative era. Now, 20 years later, the Cowboy Junkies have returned to The Church of the Holy Trinity to celebrate their most famous work with the help of special guests Ryan Adams, Natalie Merchant, Vic Chesnutt, and Jeff Bird.
