Good Brothers visit de­coste on lat­est al­bum tour

Truro Daily News - - COMMUNITY -

PIC­TOU, N.S. – A ca­reer that spans over 45 years is one many mu­si­cians can only dream about. But the chem­istry and har­monies pro­duced by twin brothers Brian and Bruce and younger brother Larry Good are among the rea­sons The Good Brothers have re­mained a ma­jor part of the Cana­dian mu­si­cal scene.

The ti­tle of their lat­est al­bum is Wide Awake Dreamin’, and The Good Brothers re­turn to the de­coste Cen­tre in Pic­tou, Sept. 27.

Their mu­sic is time­less, rang­ing from coun­try, to blue­grass and folk and touches many peo­ple with their lyrics that many re­late to.

While they’re well known for some of their cov­ers like Brown Eyed Girl, Okie from Musko­gee, or Fox on the Run, many of their own songs like Gone So Long, I Re­ally Dug My­self a Hole This Time, or She Told Me So, take the lis­tener back to those clas­sic coun­try songs.

The band has gar­nered a num­ber of nom­i­na­tions and awards over the years. They were in­ducted into the Cana­dian Coun­try Mu­sic Hall of Fame in 2004, the North Amer­i­can Coun­try Mu­sic As­so­ci­a­tion In­ter­na­tional Hall of Fame in Ten­nessee in 2016 and re­ceived the Life­time Achieve­ment Award from the Toronto Mu­si­cians As­so­ci­a­tion in 2015.

The band will be back at the de­coste Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre in Pic­tou on Friday, Sept. 27 at 7:30 p.m.

They will be bring­ing with them world-renowned fid­dle and man­dolin player, Ray Legere who hails from Sackville, N.B., whose own mu­si­cal pro­fes­sion has been equally as vi­brant over the past 35 years as he’s toured the world and recorded with top mu­si­cians in many mu­si­cal gen­res, in­clud­ing Rita Mc­neil and John Mcder­mott.

Tick­ets for the show are $43 and $40 for mem­bers and can be pur­chased by con­tact­ing the de­coste Box Of­fice, Monday to Friday 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 902-485-8848 ext. 1, toll free at 1-800353-5338, or on­line at de­coste­cen­tre.ca.

This show will also have lim­ited Arts Are for Ev­ery­one passes that can be ob­tained from one of the seven lo­cal Pic­tou-antigo­nish Re­gional Li­brary branches with a li­brary card.
