Ray Cooper joins us for an intimate, candlelit evening in the newly completed Lost ARC cafe space!
**Ticket price for the evening includes some food in the interval and a glass of bubbly**
Ray spent many years as a member of successful folk/rock group Oysterband before opting for life as a solo artist in 2013 and has never looked back.
In his own words… “I am an acoustic singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, the guy that sings with a cello, as well as mandolin, guitar and piano.
I am half Scottish and half English, I have no home town, I think of myself as a north European now. A romantic. I look back on history with the hope to learn something about the present, to catch the repeating patterns. I get my ideas from memories, dreams, history books, biographies, online news outlets, conversations I remember or imagine, I have no method. Trad tunes weave their way in and out because they are just so strong and are as much a part of my cultural roots as rock ‘n roll.”
These days Ray resides in Sweden, so it is a real treat to have him coming to visit, and an opportunity not to be missed.
