The Cowboy Junkies were founded by guitarist/songwriter Michael Timmins and bassist Alan Anton, soon joined by Michael’s brother Peter Timmins on drums, and sister Margo Timmins on vocals. They released their debut album in 1986 through their own label, which caught the eye of RCA Records, who released The Trinity Session in 1988, recorded inside Toronto's Holy Trinity Church in the span of one night. The Trinity Session became a cult hit, earning rave reviews from critics and substantial college radio airplay for tracks like "Misguided Angel" and their cover of "Sweet Jane." Something of that sound should be recreated in the acoustically similar space of Asbury Hall.

Over 20 years and 15 albums later, the Junkies once again are releasing albums on their own label, Latent Recordings. Their most recent release is Trinity Revisited, a CD/DVD package put together to revisit that iconic Trinity Session recording. Featuring appearances from Ryan Adams, the late Vic Chesnutt, and Western New York's own Natalie Merchant, Trinity Revisited re-examines the songs through the voice of time and experience, and re-imagines them in a new light. In addition to their own recordings, the Junkies are using their label to assist other musicians, including opening band Lee Harvey Osmond, comprising Tom Wilson of Blackie & the Rodeo Kings, a Junkie or two, another Rodeo King, and a Skydigger or two.
