Our Song Of The Week Is A 2012 Gem From Cowboy Junkies
Our look back at some of our favorite episodes continues with this week’s look back to 2012 for a show with Rich Robinson of The Black Crowes, songwriter and now Tony-winning Playwright Anais Mitchell, Australia’s journeyman songwriter Paul Kelly and The Cowboy Junkies.
Our Song of the Week comes from revered Canadian indie-folk rockers Cowboy Junkies, who have appeared on Mountain Stage nine times since 1992. This 2012 performance includes “Damaged From the Start,” a song from the band’s album, “The Wilderness.” It was the fourth and final volume in group’s extensive Nomad Series, which saw them release four albums of new material in an 18-month period.
Cowboy Junkies released new music earlier in 2020 with Ghosts.
