Free Range Concerts Presents
An Evening With
Sunday, August 7, 2016
6 pm - 10 pm
Kim and I are thrilled to welcome back Eric Brace and Peter Cooper, joined once again by the incomparable guitarist/producer Thomm Jutz. If you caught them before, you know why we’re excited. This is song writing, harmony singing, guitar picking and personal performance at their finest.
We first met Grammy nominees Eric and Peter at the Americana Music Festival in Telluride, Colorado three years go. We were smitten by their music, warmth and sense of humor. Thomm joined them here for their first Free Range Concert. Now we’re pleased to call them friends.
Eric and Peter released a delicious new album this year, “C&O Canal.” It’s an evocative collection of songs from the likes of Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin Carpenter, John Starling and Alice Gerrard. Having grown up in the Washington, D.C. area, I understand where they’re coming from: these are people who hung out and performed at the famed Birchmere, Cellar Door and Gallagher’s nightclubs, and the album references the iconic Chesapeake and Ohio Canal that stretches from DC to Cumberland, Maryland, now a national park. Expect to hear cuts and have a chance to pick up this fine, fine album during the concert. Sweetest of all, it was produced by Thomm Jutz who also sang and picked on it.
You can click the links below to get a taste of our friends and their music, or you can just take our word for it. This will be a special evening of music, art, humanity and love. Just what we need about now.
Rangers, this is real deal, big-time, world class music, up close and personal. If you missed them before, don’t make the same mistake. Seats will go quickly. Eric Brace, Peter Cooper and Thomm Jutz. Here. August 7.
Food and conversation start at 6 pm. Live music happens at 7 pm. Pitch-in and BYOB. RSVP requested. Reservations required.
