Eric Brace & Peter Cooper w/ Thomm Jutz

Apr 27, 2018 |  0 comments

Grammy nominees Eric Brace & Peter Cooper have created a body of work that reflects their journalistic sensibilities, their love of harmony, and their subtly wry humor, not to mention their deep respect for the masters they’ve learned from and played with. The duo’s fourth album, C&O Canal, was released in early 2016. Named for the historic waterway that runs from Washington D.C. up into the Appalachian Mountains, the album is Brace & Cooper’s tribute to Washington’s folk, bluegrass, blues, and country scenes from the ‘60s through the ‘80s. Both spent their high school years in Washington (and in Brace’s case, many of his adult years as well), and both absorbed the musical lessons of such Washington stars as the Seldom Scene, Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin Carpenter. This album of covers pays homage to those and others, and was produced, recorded, mixed, and arranged by the multi-talented Thomm Jutz, whose acoustic guitar playing and vocal harmonies are found...

The Julius Pittman and the Revival band is the vision of Julius “Ray” Pittman to form a band dedicated to revitalizing ‘Old School’ Rock & Soul sounds of the Memphis Stax Volt era. Julius Pittman has been the leading force for several popular bands over the years, including the Kingpins (1980’s and 90’s) and The Ray Pittman Project, which lead to the evolution of the Julius Pittman and the Revival in February 2009. The music of the “Revival” presents a trip back to funky southern soul. “My overall concept to get into a rock and soul revival, without forgetting our blues and jazz roots,” said Pittman. “Al Green is one of my all-time favorites, and the first time I heard Jack Mack’s first album, ‘Cardiac Party,’ I literally jumped out of my seat. I knew that’s the kind of band I wanted to be in.” Julius Pittman and the Revival brings to the audience, sounds and dynamics reminiscent of Otis Redding, Al Green, Jack Mack & The Heart Attack and Tower...

Though some of the group’s members have changed over time, Ronnie has been playing and singing Carter Family music since 1975. The Carter Family Sound has performed at many schools, churches and fairs around the area. They have also been featured performers on the television show “Song of the Mountains.” Ronnie plays the autoharp, guitar and accordion, honoring the “Carter Scratch” style of playing guitar and autoharp.

During Ronnie’s career, he has shared the stage at one time or another with all of the Carters as well as “adopted Carter” and June’s husband, Johnny Cash. Ronnie is joined each year at the Carter Family Festival by Lorrie Carter Bennett, daughter of Anita. The two also collaborate for shows in the...
