Cowboy Junkies Sweat It Out In Richmond!

The Cowboy Junkies

The Cowboy Junkies

Thursday night we went to see the Cowboy Junkies as a part of The Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens, Groovin’ in the Gardens series. This was my first time attending this series and the venue was comfortable and spacious.

Michael and Margo Timmins

The Cowboy Junkies, together since 1985, are from Toronto, Canada. They have been touring for twenty years and are still as fresh as when they recorded their first album in the family garage. The Cowboys Junkies are made up of the Timmins siblings, Michael on guitar, Pete on drums, and Margo on vocals.  Alan Anton played bass and a fifth member (?) who is currently on tour with them  played mandolin and “banged on things.”

The appreciative crowd enjoyed the music from the Cowboy Junkies as well as opening act, Lee Harvey Osmond, another Canadian artist on a beautiful June evening in Richmond, VA.
