Peter Bruntnell Trio

plus support


7.30 p.m Doors


If you ask the likes of Peter Buck (REM), Scott McCaughey (REM, Minus 5), Willy Vlautin (Richmond Fontaine), Jay Farrar (Son Volt, Uncle Tupelo), John Murry, or Kathleen Edwards they’ll all tell you that Peter Bruntnell is a writer with rare and mysterious qualities. Peter has a unique ‘way with a tune’ and the most interesting thing about his music - and part of the reason for his devoted following - is the indefinable knack the songs have of locking into one’s emotions in an elusive, intangible but deeply affecting way.

Respected journalist Keith Cameron once claimed in NME that “Peter Bruntnell’s records should be taught in schools” - such is the particular appeal of the quiet Devonian’s songwriting craft.

Off the back of a well-received set at BBC Scotland’s “Quay Sessions with Roddy Hart”, a session for “Another Country with Ricky Ross”, and several sold out trio shows throughout March, July, and November 2017, Peter will (once again) take to the road with a line-up comprising himself on acoustic guitar, harmonica, and vocals, Danny Williams (The Rails, and ex- Black Grape/St. Etienne) on double bass, and one of Scotland’s most in-demand musicians of the moment, Iain Sloan (of The Wynntown Marshals and Blue Rose Code) on pedal steel, guitar, and backing vocals.
