BACKROADS COUNTRY

TIM HUS
BUSH PILOT BUCKAROO


By Allison Brock
Tim Hus has come out with his fourth record - and it just keeps on getting better and better. He's a storyteller in the old sense of the word, spinning the tales of the everyman - the trucker, cowboys, miners, rumrunners, vagabonds and yes, the bush pilot buckaroos.

He may well be the ultimate in Canadiana songwriters. The best part, though, is when he tells us a story - it's the truth. As he wends his way through the countryside you could follow him with a map; there are no fictional places here.

Tim has earned a loyal following by constantly being on the highways and byways that turn up in his tunes. Every weekend Tim, Tim hits the road to play somewhere - from small backroads community halls to bigger-city saloons. The number of shows he plays each year is staggering.

In his lyrics, people can sense the truth; that's part of the reason they keep coming back to see him. Numbering among his fans are other great storytellers such as Corb Lund, Ian Tyson, and Stompin' Tom Connors. No doubt about it - Tim Hus is the real deal and he writes about what he sees.

Allison Brock is a broadcaster with shows on CKUA in Alberta and HANK FM in Winnipeg, MB. She lives outside of Pincher Creek, AB and her radio programs focus on traditional sounding country music.
