    Infinity Hall Live [#202H] Cowboy Junkies With their languid guitars and ethereal vocals, the Canadian group Cowboy Junkies cast a narcotic spell over their Infinity Hall audience in this intimate concert performance. Consisting of Alan Anton (bass), and siblings Michael Timmins (guitar), Peter Timmins (drums) and Margo Timmins (vocals), Cowboy Junkies specialize in a unique sound that combines country, blues and folk, but often with a touch of melancholy thrown in for good measure. As Margo Timmins jokingly told the audience, "I figure if you're here tonight, you like sad songs. At least I hope you do. If you don't, you should probably leave about now." The group began in Toronto when Michael and Alan returned from Europe after an unsuccessful stint with a couple of musical acts. Back home, they began jamming with Michael's brother Peter on drums and sister Margo on vocals, despite the fact that she was a social worker who had never performed in public before. Their first significant release was The Trinity Session in 1988, which they recorded in one night with one microphone inside Toronto's Church of the Holy Trinity. The album proved to be a cult hit garnering critical acclaim and college radio airplay for the songs "Sweet Jane" and "Misguided Angel." Since that time, the band had built and maintained a loyal fan base who appreciate their smart, bluesy compositions and daring, independent style. Most recently, Cowboy Junkies began a unique four-album cycle called The Nomad Series over an 18-month period with every album built around a different (but common) narrative, from time spent in China to a tribute record to the late musician Vic Chestnutt. Fans of the Cowboy Junkies won't be disappointed with their Infinity Hall set, which offers a nice mix of old and new songs from their 26-year career, including the crowd favorite "Sweet Jane," a lyrical, mandolin-accompanied version of "Fairytale," Vic Chestnutt's "See You Around," and a cover of Neil Young's "Powderfinger." duration 56:27   STEREO TVPG

    This episode: "Innocent until proven guilty. Four words to live by" is just about all Martha Costello has to go on when she's handed two big cases with only one night to mount her defenses of an accused drug mule and aggravated burglar. All this, before she must defend an accused rapist, whose alleged victim is being defended by her ruthless rival, Clive Reader.
