Cowboy Junkies are an alternative rock/country/blues band which hails from Toronto, Canada.  The group was formed in 1985 by Michael, Margo, Peter Timmins (all siblings), and Alan Anton.  The Timmins siblings are descendants of Noah Timmins, the mining prospector for whom the town, of Timmins, Ontario, was named.  Another sister of this talented family was Cali Timmins, who began as an actress starring in the production, "Ryan's Hope".

After an inauspicious start, the band received critical attention with their second album, "The Trinity Session", which was recorded in 1987 in the Church of the Holy Trinity in downtown Toronto.
