Chilliwack – Murray McLauchlan is one of Canada’s most highly regarded singer/songwriters, and with good cause. Over a 45-year career, he has released 19 albums and been awarded 11 Junos. His songs Farmer’s Song, Down by the Henry Moore, Whispering Rain and Sweeping the Spotlight Away are now considered Canadian standards.
Murray is also a painter, an author, an actor, a radio host; he’s been bestowed an Honourary Doctor of Laws and appointed to The Order of Canada. That’s quite a ride. Until recently Murray’s touring had been restricted to Lunch At Allen’s, whose members also include Ian Thomas, Marc Jordan and Cindy Church. That tour rolled through Chilliwack in 2017 and the FVN review is here.
With the release earlier this year of his critically acclaimed Love Can’t Tell Time, he’s back on the road treating concert goers to a seamless blend of old and new.
McLauchlan is playing the HUB International Theatre/Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Thursday June 20. Reserved seating tickets for An Evening in Concert with Murray McLauchlan are $47.50 (facility fees and tax incl., handling charges may apply).
