When folk/blues singer Kim Churchill hits the stage at the Exchange on Thursday, Nov. 13 he’ll be a long way from home. That’s because home, for him, is Canberra, Australia. Fortunately, he’s young, and is up for the rigors of touring countries as expansive as Canada and his homeland.
As it happens, he has a particular following in Canada, where he’s played the Ottawa Blues Festival, the Montreal International Jazz Festival and Canadian Music Week. For this gig, he’s being joined by Nova Scotia singer-songwriter Mo Kenney, who was last in town for the Regina Folk Festival in August.
Doors at the Exchange next Thursday are at 8 p.m., and tickets are $15. To give you a sense of what to expect, here’s the video for the single off Kim Churchill’s 2014 album Silence/Win — a tune called “Window to the Sky”:
