Country Singer Tim Hus is making his way back to Golden to help out his friends at the Little Mittens Animal Rescue.

Country Singer Tim Hus is making his way back to Golden to help out his friends at the Little Mittens Animal Rescue.

Hus has performed in Golden several times over the past couple years for the organization, and requested he play a show for them on Sept. 12. The show will also be a CD Release Concert for Hus’ latest album.

“The Rockwater has agreed to hold the concert, and all the ticket sales will go to Little Mittens,” said Jamie Crawford with Little Mittens.

Hus is an Albertan through and through, and one who takes the history of Canada seriously. He’s an artist who creates his songs from a place of deep respect and understanding.

Part of a new generation of songwriters who have been nurtured on the tapestry of sounds that country served up in the ‘60s and ‘70s, Hus points to many life experiences and the influences of family and specific musicians when it comes to assessing his own make-up as an artist.

The late Stompin’ Tom Connors has been quoted as saying, “I’ve been looking for 30 years for a young guy who’s proud to write songs about our country. I’d like to pass the torch to Tim Hus.”

Hus was also given the honour of performing at Connors’ memorial service in Peterborough, Ont., and was a pallbearer at the music legend’s private funeral.

Little Mittens is grateful for Hus’ continued support, especially after a busy first half of 2013. They have had more than 150 cats and kittens come through their doors for one reason or another since the start of 2013, and currently have 68 cats and kittens available for adoption.

His new album, Western Star, is Hus’ strongest album to date both lyrically and sonically. He was helped out by famed producer Harry Stinson, known for his work with Steve Earl, Marty Stuart and Trisha Yearwood.

Tickets for the CD release show are $15, and are available in advance at the Rockwater, through Little Mittens, or at the door.

Little Mittens is also hosting a garage sale in the CP Parking lot, across from 7-Eleven, on Sept. 14 to raise funds for their operations.
