The Cowboy Junkies, Featuring Country Music and Alternative Rock, Are Coming to The Ridgefield Playhouse


The Cowboy Junkies own brand of country blues/rock will be headed to the Northeast to perform in Connecticut at The Ridgefield Playhouse. The Cowboy Junkies seminal second album, “The Trinity Session,” was recorded in one 14-hour session at Toronto’s church of the Holy Trinity. It sold more than 1.5 million copies internationally. Now, though, the Cowboy Junkies are riding into The Ridgefield Playhouse for Movies and the Performing Arts on Thursday, June 14 at 8 p.m.

Ridgefield, CT, May 22, 2007 --(PR.com)-- The Cowboy Junkies are coming to The Ridgefield Playhouse on June 14.

The Cowboy Junkies seminal second album, “The Trinity Session,” was recorded in one 14-hour session at Toronto’s church of the Holy Trinity. It sold more than 1.5 million copies internationally and featured an a capella tune recorded by Margo Timmins, five Michael Timmins originals and a variety of songs previously made famous by other recording artists. Naturally, it included their brother Peter Timmons on drums and Alan Anton on bass. Now, though, the Cowboy Junkies are riding into The Ridgefield Playhouse for Movies and the Performing Arts on Thursday, June 14 at 8 p.m.

“The Trinity Session,” released in 1987, illustrated Michael Timmins’s masterful songwriting and guitar playing, but the most identifiable feature of the Cowboy Junkies sound was, and still is, Margo’s voice. During their early career, the Junkies rehearsed in a tiny, urban garage and kept their volume low. Margo also sang quietly and began to realize her soft voice was very effective, and it became a signature sound for the group.

By 1992, the Junkies’ style had evolved; they increased their volume, tempos and instrumentation on the album, “Black Eyed Man.” In 2004, they returned to their roots and without the help of a producer or engineer, they recorded the album, “One Soul Now.” The title reflected the state of the band; after 20 years, the Junkies were performing as one cohesive unit.

On “At the End of Paths Taken,” their album released this year, the Cowboy Junkies’ gothic Americana takes a psychedelic hue, replete with Beatlesque string sections and snarling, distorted guitar leads.
