The Cowboy Junkies' cover fellow Canadian Neil Young's Helpless
...which is a good expenditure of six precious minutes of a human being's too-limited life.
Four nights ago in Hopewell, Virginia they did Neil's Don't Let It Bring You down and a Gordon Lightfoot cover. Margot Timmins told us it was some kinda of law for Canadian acts, to cover each other.
They also covered non-Canadians the Stones, VU, Bowie, and Townes Van Zandt. And a bunch of their own music, of course -- they did 20 songs. My favorite was the show closer, the Patsy Cline hit Walkin' After Midnight. Margot still slays on it.
I snagged a setlist of Sunday's concert and posted it:
