T Buckley strayed off the beaten path when recording his latest album and the choice is making him an inter-generational favourite.
Released in October, "Miles We Put Behind" offers a more polished, honeyed and honest sound. It's a collection of mature, introspective songs, that speaks to what it means to be a husband and father while remaining a keen observer of the world around him.
Tonight (Feb. 22), audiences have a chance to catch T Buckley with a new lineup at the St. Andrew's United Church, 128 1st St. E. Doors open at 7 and the show beings at 8 p.m.
While remaining a trio, Buckley is backed up by Mitch Jay and Jess Dollimont.
"Between these two monster talents, we’ve got piano, mandolin, dobro, pedal steel, electric guitar and some pretty sweet sounding harmonies," Buckley tweeted just days ago. "Rehearsal today was pretty inspiring, can’t wait to share it with you."
Jay also happens to have been named the top steel guitar player for the last two years at the Canadian Country Music Awards.
"Miles We Put Behind" debuted on the CBC Top 20 Chart and stayed there for nine consecutive weeks. It went on to be one of CBC's Fan Favourites for the year. It also topped the CJSW folk/roots/blues chart and landed at number two in the national folk/roots.blues chart.
Advance tickets are $30 and it's $35 at the door. You can purchase your tickets at www.brownpapertickets.com.
Doors open at 7 p.m.
