The C.V. of C.R. Avery

Canadian musician and poet C.R. Avery has been called an “international treasure” by Jolie Holland, “audacious and astonishing” by London Timeout and “like a collaboration between Beck and the Beastie Boys at their most experimental” by All Music Guide. He has toured with Tom Waits and Billy Bragg. He has recorded over fifteen albums. He has six musicals to his name. He has his new book, Some Birds Walk for the Hell of It. He is the frontman for Legal Tender String Quartet, the lead singer/harp player for rock and rollers The Special Interest Group and the musical backbone of the spoken word trio Tons of Fun University. He can do most anything. The Bridge, Castlemaine – November 16.
