Copper Viper

15 October, 2pm at Shaftesbury Hall

Tickets £12 - buy here

Much anticipated since their last visit to BPFC three years ago, as well as searing harmonies this trio are a lot of fun - expect a lot of foot-stomping and yelping!

Copper Viper is an acoustic folk trio from London, comprised of prolific songwriter and guitarist Robin Joel Sangster, fiddle/mandolin player Duncan Menzies and banjo picker Dana Immanuel. Drawing inspiration from the British folk and American country/bluegrass traditions, Copper Viper’s music marries haunting melodies and intricate vocal harmonies with searing instrumental passages to create a stylistic blend that is at once familiar and unique.

The group recorded their debut album “Cut It Down, Count The Rings” at Bear Creek Studio in Woodinville WA, USA with platinum-selling producer Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, Brandi Carlile). Mastered by Grammy-winning engineer Gavin Lurssen (“O Brother, Where Art Thou?” Soundtrack, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss), the album flows smoothly between lyrical ballads and foot-stomping barn-stormers, mixing melancholy, hope, tension and joy in equal measure.

Directions to Shaftesbury Hall are here.
