    The Troubadour Tales Tour Begins…KENNY BUTTERILL to play Treasures Roadhouse and The Trout Farm Inn on July 24th and 25thJuly, 2014 Santa Cruz, CA — “Kenny Butterill is a gentle, country and blues songwriter-producer molded from the same elements as J.J. Cale… he’s original, sensitive, perceptive, warm and above all memorable … he’s got the stuff,” said Barry Hammond of Penguin Eggs, Canada’s leading folk, roots and world music publication. On Thursday, July 24, 2014, Butterill will be at the Treasures Roadhouse, in Corralitos, CA for a 7:30 p.m. concert. On Friday, July 25th, 2014, he will perform at The Trout Farm Inn in Felton, CA starting at 9:00 p.m. Butterill is in Northern California for a couple of shows with his band after touring back home in eastern Canada to support the release of his new CD “Troubadour Tales”. Ten years in the making, the “Troubadour Tales” CD was recorded in seven studios, has over twenty world class guests, including Donovan and is getting rave reviews. Sometimes compared to JJ Cale, Gordon Lightfoot and John Prine, Butterill’s rustic, minimalist music is richly textured but never over-produced. It has a warm ambience with an up-close personal vibe and a cool feel and groove. At these two special “Troubadour Tales Tour” shows, concert goers will be able to purchase advance copies of Kenny’s new “Troubadour Tales” CD prior to its release to the general public. “There is a time in every artist’s career when they are at the top of their game. For Kenny Butterill that time is now!” says Brent Jeffries, freelance writer for The Sun Times, Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada where Butterill performed last year. Don’t miss an intimate evening with Kenny Butterill.
