The Good Intentions
U.K.'s Americana super group, The Good Intentions, are touring through California this month to support their new album "The Long Unbroken Line." They join us at The Coffee Gallery on October 21, the albums' official release day, and will be joined by the wonderful Rick Shea, who did the producing honors on this great new record.
The Good Intentions songs are centered around the original songwriting of Peter Davies, guitarist, and lead vocal, supported by harmony vocals from Gabrielle Monk, who also plays autoharp and accordion. Their songs have an old time feel with memorable tunes, clear harmonies, thoughtful lyrics, and traditional instrumentation.
Steve and I will debut our brand new duo tunes along with our friends sitting in: Mark Indictor on fiddle and Fred Sanders on bass. This concert will be filmed.
We hope to continue this fruitful new collaboration with Peter and Gabi. And if all goes well, we'll be off across the pond together next year!
Next month we'll be in concert with one of the most brilliant musicians on the planet, the incredible Joe Craven and his wonderful new trio The Sometimers. Their new CD will also be with them at these shows.
