Music Connect

Guelph is filled with so many talented artists - painters, sculptors, musicians, dancers, film makers, playwrights, jazz artists, poets....the list goes on. It's lovely living in a city rich in culture and because the city is small everyone seems to know each other which adds to the warmth of attending the different venues.

One of our famous talents is Jeff Bird, a local musician who has been associated with the "Cowboy Junkies" for over 18 years and is part of music history in the city. Hearing him play many times, he just gets better!

Trinity Revisited is an album and a film by Cowboy Junkies, released on October 16, 2007 - a 20th anniversary edition of their most famous album, The Trinity Session. The new album was recorded in the fall of 2006 at Toronto's Church of the Holy Trinity. Guest musicians on the album include Natalie Merchant, Ryan Adams and Vic Chesnutt, as well as Jeff Bird, - a session musician who has appeared on virtually every Cowboy Junkies album. Visit and listen to more of Jeff's music at MySpace.
