An Evening With Neil Osborne of 54-40
Friday, March 31st, 2017
Barely North Entertainment presents and evening with Neil Osborne of 54-40. Neil Osborne, of 54•40 fame, will be playing an intimate show for a small audience in one of the Cowichan Valley's best sounding rooms—the Providence Farm Chapel.
As lead singer and chief songwriter of 54•40, Neil Osborne has achieved critical acclaim, released a dozen albums and weathered the fickle music business for more than three decades. He is known primarily as a rock musician but is also an accomplished producer often taking the production reins of 54•40 albums and is also a songwriter of amazing depth and clarity. 54•40’s body of work is impressive.
After thirty years in the musical trenches, the band have varied their sound and earned proven commercial success via impressive record sales from ten studio albums, two greatest hits packages and a double live album. As a songwriter Osborne has penned such fabulous signature 54•40 songs as ‘I Go Blind’, ‘One Gun’, ‘Since When’ and ‘Ocean Pearl’ which have crossed from the realm of rock to a broader base. His lyrics range from the most politically astute observation to the most innocent love song and everything in between.
Doors open at 7:00pm and show begins at 7:30pm Tickets are $25 advance, and if any remain will be $30 at the door. Available at Duncan Music, the Providence Farm General Store, and <https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/an-evening-with-neil-osborne-of-54-40-tickets-32388465773>
