Cochrane Valley Music Club Featuring THE BILLS
Friday, November 15, 2013 — Cochrane Alliance Church, 902 Glenbow Drive, Cochrane, Alberta
From the beautiful West Coast of Canada comes this extraordinary quintet, renowned among folk music fans of all ages for their instrumental virtuosity, lush vocal arrangements, exuberant live performances, evocative songwriting, and refreshingly innovative interpretations of traditional tunes from around the globe. Drawing musical inspiration from a broad range of North American traditions, a melange of European stlyings, rhythms of Latin America, and melodies of the wandering Romany peoples, The Bills have forged a musical style all their own that transcends musical boundaries and defies simple categorization. With three main writers in the band, The Bills have developed a glorious and growing repertoire of songs that speak of their own part of the world.
“Their sound is panoramic, mischievious, fiercely unpretentious - and musically splendid.” – Boston Globe
Opening for the Bills from Vancouver are the Sweet Lowdown.
“Their rustic purity and earthy sensuality is at the heart of the current roots music revival… With a fresh sound and originality, they’re walking a musical road with a clear vision for their songs.” - Joe Ross, Roots Music Report
