Kim Churchill will be performing at the Cornell Farms barn on Tuesday, June 12.
This young Australian singer-songwriter is returning to Canada this summer to spend a couple of months touring the country from coast to coast.
The tour will take him from festival to festival all the way out east and back west again, zigzagging across Canada until October.
According to his online biography, “Churchill’s style is explosive, with intricate finger-picking, percussive beats on the body of the guitar, and two-handed tapping intertwined with an earthy stomp box, powerful harmonica melodies, and soulful voice.
“His songwriting reflects his coastal lifestyle–growing up on the east coast of Australia, with the surf at his front door—and his nomadic life on the road.”
The intimate atmosphere of the Cornell barn will be an excellent venue for this unique performer.
Interested music-lovers definitely should mark June 12 on their calendars.
