Finally!!! Cox and McRae are coming back to GP!!! Wednesday February 9, 2022.
Postponed from 2020, this concert from a duo of sublimely talented roots-acoustic musicians who merge great vocals with striking instrumental prowess is sure to bring about a full spectrum of sonic wonder! Doug Cox and Linda McRae have decades of experience as songwriters and performers – and because they’re at that point in their careers where they’ve nothing left to prove, ego gets put aside, and it’s all about serving the song and honouring the audience.
Doug Cox also does some fine singing, but it’s his virtuosic skills as a multi-instrumentalist that have gotten him all sorts of award nominations and requests to play and record with. A peerless master on guitar, Dobro, mandolin, and Weissenborn, Doug fluently spans the gamut of Americana, from New Orleans funk to Texas twang. Quite simply, he creates magic on string instruments.
Canadian-born, Nashville-based Linda McRae is the trio’s other multi-instrumentalist, adding clawhammer banjo, acoustic and electric guitars, accordion, bass, and foot percussion to the mix. Best known for her stint with Canadian supergroup Spirit of the West, Linda has released six acclaimed records as a solo artist and is an indefatigable “road warrior.”
Tickets = Advance @ $30, At the Door @ $33
