Ark: Cowboy Junkies
This acclaimed veteran Toronto-based quartet plays a brand of blues- and country-based rock 'n' roll chamber music that suggests a back-porch Velvet Underground. Their central asset is the utterly mesmerizing voice of Margo Timmins, and between Timmins's haunted, lunar vocals and the band's spare, at times almost subliminal accompaniment, they transform the songs they play into ghostly apparitions, luxuriously hushed meditations on passing time. The band's live repertoire blends favorites from throughout its more than 30-year career with new songs written during its Covid- enforced hiatus. $50-$90.
