COMING UP: Eric Brace & Peter Cooper at View Two Gallery, 20 July 2012

Grammy-nominated Americana duo Eric Brace & Peter Cooper will be playing in the intimate surroundings of the View Two Gallery on Mathew Street this Friday (20th July). Supporting Eric and Peter on the night will be The Good Intentions, winners of the Americana Act of the Year at the 2011 British Country Music Awards, and Woody Guthrie Folk Club’s resident banjo player Linus Rowe.

Singer/songwriter Eric Brace is one of the most acclaimed artists in the Americana world. His latest release, ‘Master Sessions’ (with Peter Cooper) is garnering the best reviews of Brace’s career. Its evocative songs and its astonishing instrumental work, courtesy of pedal steel legend Lloyd Green and dobro ace Mike Auldridge, are raising eyebrows and catching ears worldwide. Since 1997, Eric Brace has been the frontman and songwriter for the acclaimed roots-rock band Last Train Home. At the core of the band’s sound are Eric’s evocative songs and his warm voice.

Formed in 2003, the award-winning The Good Intentions are R. Peter Davies, Gabrielle Monk, and Fransesco Roskell. The band’s music is based around old time acoustic instrumental and three part harmony sounds, playing Alt Country, Americana, and Bluegrass, with all songs on their two albums being written by Peter. The band won the Maverick Festival’s Country Music Song Competition in 2009, and in the last two years The Good Intentions have moved from smaller venues in the north of England to playing music festivals in the UK, as well as touring The Netherlands and the USA. In October 2011 The Good Intentions won Americana Act of the Year at the British Country Music Awards – a real testimony to their professional musicianship and well-crafted songs.
