Hugh Christopher Brown / The Ropes play Wakefield with Sarah McDermott and Rocky Roberts PLUS Stephen Stanley (Lowest of The Low)
The Ropes is the latest album from Hugh Christopher Brown uniting him with Bourbon Tabernacle Choir mate Jason Mercer for the first time since the breakup of the legendary Canadian band. The Ropes are Jason Mercer - bass Pete Bowers - drums Hugh Christopher Brown - keys, guitar and vocals
"For My money, Hugh Christopher Brown is one of the best lyricists- and poets- in the country. His work at the keyboards is poetry too."
"Between recording, playing and travelling together, I've spent some serious time with Chris Brown.....but this new record, The Ropes, is a whole new experience captured by a trick of time. I wasn't around to hear the Bourbon Tabernacles back in the day, so it's a beautiful thing and some wonder to hear Chris, Jason, Pete, and Kate conjure up a whole new set of songs to together after a few trips around the planet, 20 years later…"
“As one of Canada’s consummate musicians over the past three decades, Hugh Christopher Brown has always tapped into the spiritual healing power of song. It’s the kind of soul music few artists outside of, say, Van Morrison, ever attempt…”
Jason Schneider/FYI Music News Canada
“Brown’s Pacem is one of those albums that works on the listener from the inside out. The more I listen, the more I am astonished by its depth and intricacy. ..masterfully constructed songs, stream of consciousness epic ballads, and a piano instrumental where Brown gently demonstrates his virtuoso talents and interpretive depth.”
