MUSIC: “The Cowboy Junkies”

From Willamette Week, 6/25/08:

[SMOOTH COUNTRY POP] Last year, the Cowboy Junkies returned to Toronto’s Holy Trinity Church to record Trinity Revisited—playing the exact set they performed 20 years earlier at said venue when recording the original, seminalTrinity Session. In the two decades between the dual Trinities, the Junkies have embarked on a pretty impressive trajectory, ever-refining their brand of hypnotic, soulful country rock. The group’s consistency is thanks in no small part to the exquisite vocal chords of Margo Timmins (who will always hold a place somewhere on my top 10 list of people I’d love to sing me a lullaby before bed).

Saturday, June 28 @ 7 pm. Oregon Zoo, 4001 SW Canyon Road., 220-2789. $25. All ages.
