Tim Hus has spent the last thirteen years performing his unique brand of Canadian songs from coast to coast in Canada, USA, and overseas performing as many as 200 concerts a year. Hus spent two years touring with Canadian icon Stompin’ Tom Connors on his final Newfoundland to Vancouver cross-country trek where Tim was heralded as “The best opening act Tom has had in his 50 year career”.
This past July Hus performed for 10 nights on the country’s largest stage: The Grandstand Show at the world famous Calgary Stampede for 25 000 people per night.
In September 2013 Tim released his highly anticipated sixth CD Western Star (his third for Stony Plain Records) joining Corb Lund and the legendary Ian Tyson on the label. The album reached #1 on the Roots Music Report chart and #3 on itunes Canada in sales.
Hus comes at his audience like a runaway rig, while firing off image-laden lyrics with the intensity of a western gunslinger. Hus was recently nominated for “Folk/Roots” artist of the year at the Canadian Music Awards and “Songwriter of the Year” at the Folk Music Awards. Tim’s distinctive song-writing and spirited performances stand as a cornerstone of authentic Canadiana. Tim will be accompanied on his 2016 Home Routes Tour of the Yukon by his long-time friend and travelin’ compadre Spider Bishop on upright bass and acoustic guitar.
”Tim Hus may be the new lion of country music. One of the best country albums I have heard in my life. No lie.”
”He may well be the ultimate in Canadiana songwriters”
