VERNON - The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society proudly presents Cowboy Junkies on Saturday, Oct. 1 2016 at 7:30 p.m. at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre. This concert is the Centre’s 15th birthday bash.

For more than 30 years, legendary Canadian country/blues/folk rock band Cowboy Junkies have remained true to their artistic vision to create the introspective, quiet intensity that is their unique and celebrated sound.

Distinguished by the haunting vocals of Margo Timmins, this Juno-nominated group has created a critically acclaimed body of original work that has endeared them to an audience unwavering in its loyalty.

In 1985, siblings Margo Timmins and Peter Timmins joined their brother Michael Timmins and friend Alan Anton to record their blues-inspired debut album, Whites Off Earth Now! – released independently on their label, Latent Recordings.

Their second project, The Trinity Sessions was recorded around a single microphone in a Toronto church and received enormous praise for singles including Sweet Jane and Misguided Angel.

Cowboy Junkies have subsequently released 15 albums and gone on to sell over 5 million records worldwide, earning Double Platinum (Canada), Platinum (Canada & US) and Gold (Canada) certifications.

They have toured throughout North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Holland, Germany, Japan and Australia, and earn international acclaim from critics and fans alike. Admired worldwide for their live performance, Cowboy Junkies were the first Canadian band to appear on NBC-TV’s influential Saturday Night Live.

The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society welcomes Cowboy Junkies to Vernon as they tour to share their classics and music from their most recent album releases, Notes Falling Slow and The Nomad Series.
