I'll Hold Onto This Gift We Share. It Is Slippery As It Is Rare.

Hailing from Toronto, Ontario via my hometown of Montreal, Quebec the Cowboy Junkies musical mix of traditional country, blues,folk, and later a sleepy, narcotic haze that clearly bore the stamp of the Velvet Underground has garnered them fans around the world since their inception in 1985. The vast majority of their songs are spare and quiet, taken at lethargic tempos and filled with languid guitars and detached, ethereal vocals courtesy of Michael Timmins & sister Margo Timmins (respectively). Here are six tracks culled from a live show circa 2000. For your listening (dis)pleasure:
