Nathan Tinkham

Church and Tinkham at the Studio

Saturday, May 9 at 8 p.m. Studio Live in Cumberland

When Cindy Church and Nathan Tinkham left Victoria in the spring of 1984 to pursue a musical career, they had little idea of what lay ahead.

Beginning as a duo at the Explorer Hotel in Yellowknife, the next dozen years would find them wending their way through various collaborations and incarnations. As well as building  their own careers, Church and Tinkham became part of the fabric of the folk and country scenes in Canada as members of the Ian Tyson band, Great Western Orchestra and Quartette. Along the way they worked with many other artists as well; Patsy Montana, Charlie Louvin, Jethro Burns, Sylvia Tyson and Murray McLauchlin to name a few.

After parting ways in 1997, Cindy continued with Quartette and went on to other projects, such as Lunch at Allen’s and The Nearness of You, a tribute to Hoagy Carmichael.  Nathan performed with the Undertakin’ Daddies and continues to work many other artists.  He also produces projects from his recording studio on Gabriola Island.

Now, 18 years later, they are heading back out on the road.  They’re both excited to see what their separate paths over the years will bring to the music.  Listeners can expect to hear new songs and directions along with their classic material.

Studio Live is proud to present this dynamic duo on Saturday, May 9 at 8 p.m. Advance tickets are $15 and on sale at Blue Heron Books, Comox, Bop City Records, Courtenay and Rider’s Pizza, Cumberland or $20 at the door. Studio live is located at 2679 Beaufort Ave. at First Ave., Cumberland.
