Out of an abundance of caution, the Cowboy Junkies have reluctantly decided to cancel their upcoming performance on July 17th, 2021 at Chautauqua Auditorium. Ticket buyers will receive the first opportunity to purchase new tickets when the Cowboy Junkies return to Chautauqua Auditorium.
Refunds will be processed automatically within 30 days via the Chautauqua Box Office. We value your patience and loyalty over this past year and share your disappointment in this announcement. The prospects for concerts this season at Chautauqua are more exciting each day and we hope to be able to welcome you to another event. Thank you for understanding.
Sometimes revolutions begin quietly.
In 1988, Cowboy Junkies proved that there was an audience waiting for something quiet, beautiful and reflective. The Trinity Session was like a whisper that cut through the noise — and it was compelling. It stood out in the midst of the flash and bombast that came to define the late 80’s. The now classic recording combined folk, blues and rock in a way that had never been heard before and went on to sell more than a million copies.
With Cowboy Junkies’ new album, “All That Reckoning,” the band once again gently shakes the listener to wake up. Whether commenting on the fragile state of the world or on personal relationships, this new collection of songs encourages the listener to take notice. It also may be the most powerful album Cowboy Junkies have yet recorded.
While the music is characteristically easy to listen to, the songs on “All That Reckoning” are visceral. In true Junkies fashion, the gentleness is juxtaposed with rock that can be jarring.
