An Evening with Cowboy Junkies

When: Sun., Feb. 10, 8 p.m. 2019

And once you get your Thompson fix, recuperate for a couple days and head back to the Bing for one of Canada’s most enduring alt-country acts. Cowboy Junkies have been producing finely observed portraits of heartbreak and lost souls for more than 30 years, with the sibling trio of Margo, Michael and Peter Timmins and bassist Alan Anton melding their individual voices into a perfect harmony. The Junkies were last in our neck of the woods in 2017 when they played Sandpoint’s Panida Theater, and since then they’ve released a studio album called All That Reckoning, a collection of gorgeous songs inspired by everything from 21st-century politics to the 19th-century poetry of William Blake.
