Former long time Oysterband member and multi-instrumentalist, Ray Cooper live in concert, promoting his new solo album, Palace of Tears. Tickets at 10.00 available from or telephone 0333 666 3366 (booking fee applies)

Fresh from winning three BBC Radio 2 folk awards and appearing on Later with Jools Holland with Oysterband and singer, June Tabor, Ray Cooper embarked on a solo career. His first album was the historically themed "Tales of Love War and Death by Hanging". His more recent release "Palace of Tears" is more of a singer/songwriter collection reflecting on life in Northern Europe. Catch him here in a rare London appearance in the beautiful surrounds of the Music Room at Ripley Arts Centre.

Says Ray of the Album:

'It is a bittersweet album about living and working in Northern Europe over the last quarter century. I tried to avoid nostalgia but many songs deal with the past and how is can never be reclaimed. The sound of the album is placed firmly in Northern Europe too, with the addition of Swedish musicians and some songs that reference Scotland, Sweden and my roots. All of this seen through the prism of the Swedish winter as I look out from my studio'.

This guy is a very talented performer and well worth a look, especially in such a lovely venue. He plays guitar, cello, piano, mandolin and harmonica live. Some of the tracks on Palace of Tears are quite beautiful.
