Description

This is a rare opportunity to see award-winning folk / rock musician when Oyster Band former member, Ray Cooper appears at the beautiful Hopbarn Southwell for an intimate evening with you all. Ray started to play in bands when he was 16, moving between rock, punk, pop and world music, working as a singer, bass guitarist and cellist. He went solo in February 2013, formerly known as Chopper, he joined Oyster Band in 1988. In 2012 the band was dubbed 'one of the three icons of folk' by fRoots magazine and swept the board at the 2012 BBC2 Radio 2 Folk Awards, winning best group, best album and best traditional track.

His first solo album 'Tales of Love War and Death by Hanging’ (2010) has a strongly historical theme. The sound is simple but at times evokes a much bigger scale. Citing influences such as T-Bone Burnett, Ennio Morricone, Johnny Cash and June Tabor, Ray plays cello, guitar, harmonium, mandolin, mandola, harmonica and the Finnish kantele to accompany his songs. His second album, ‘Palace Of Tears’ was released in September 22nd 2014 and is more of a singer/songwriter album but, due to his adopted home now being Sweden, retaining a distinct Nordic flavour with the inclusion of the Swedish kantele and fiddles. ‘Palace of Tears’ – a mighty sounding record’ fRoots, 2014.
