Eric Brace and Peter Cooper bring Nashville style to Altadena's Coffee Gallery
By John Sollenberger 05/24/2012
Nashville acoustic Americana guitar duo Eric Brace and Peter Cooper will grace Coffee Gallery Backstage Tuesday night with their Grammy-nominated style.
The singer/songwriters are known for their lively and engaging shows, featuring true stories and wry humor. When they’re not touring together, Brace is the lead singer and songwriter for the roots rock band Last Train Home, and Cooper is an acclaimed songwriter in his own right. They both actually come from music journalism backgrounds, as Brace was a music columnist for the Washington Post for many years, and Cooper still works as an award-winning music writer for the Nashville Tennessean.
The duo’s latest disc is “I Love: Tom T. Hall’s Songs of Fox Hollow,” on Red Beet Records. It’s received critical acclaim, being featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and “Weekend Edition,” and was dubbed a Top 5 Americana album for 2011 by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
