Tim Hus plays Trapper

A Canadian cowboy will be performing for a local charity at the Rockwater in Golden on May 4.

It’s been said that he has a voice sweeter than a Husqvarna chainsaw, a wit sharper than rusty barbed wire, and a list of songs longer than a Saskatchewan fence line.

Country singer Tim Hus comes at his audience like a runaway rig, firing off image laden lyrics with the intensity of a western gunslinger.

His distinctive songwriting and spirited performances by the member of his dynamic band stand as a cornerstone of authentic Canadiana, and he recently received a 2011 Canadian Music Award nomination for Roots Artist of the Year.

The traveling band includes Billy MacInnis on fiddle and lead guitar, and Riley Tubbs on upright bass. MacInnis is one of the most accomplished fiddle players fro the Maritimes.

He has appeared with Prairie Oyster and John Allan Cameron, and has been playing fiddle for the legendary Stompin’ Tom Connors for the past seven years.

Tubbs is from Rocky Mountain House, and lays down “the finest rhythm in the west.”

The Alberta-based singer will be performing at the Mad Trapper pub on May 4, helping out the Little Mittens Animal Rescue. Tickets are available in advance and at the door.
