Concerts + Art on Rotary Square, Casa
Thursdays, July 6 – August 31, 5pm to 7pm
This Thursday: Cousin Harley
Artist Bio: Hailing from Vancouver BC, Canada, Cousin Harley, can explode like an active volcano, swing like the Basie band and holler like A lonesome hillbilly in the back woods of the Appalachia, all in a single show. This trio has been rocking international audiences for 20 years! Not to be trifled with and not to be missed, folks, this is Cousin Harley!!!
Called the “Motorhead of Rockabilly” by a delirious fan after a particularly raucous show in Holland, there’s nothing tentative about Cousin Harley’s pedal to the metal approach to this stripped down form of rock and roll. As Pigat notes, “Cousin Harley’s been my main project for 12 or 13 years now, and people think it’s easy to play rockabilly, but nothing could be farther from the truth. Everyone has to be on board from the first note or it just doesn’t work.” And judging from the people who drove or flew hundreds of miles to attend shows on his last European jaunt, everything’s working just fine.
Weekly concerts on Rotary Square at Casa every Thursday night after work from 5pm – 7pm. Meet your friends, have a drink and listen to local music in the downtown core.
