Ablett and Cooper, Contemporary Fingerstyle Guitar, Uncorked, Thursday, June 28 at 7 pm

ablett_and_cooper2

The love of acoustic fingerstyle guitar brought Don Ablett and Brent Cooper together some years ago. With common influences such as Bruce Cockburn, John Fahey, and Stefan Grossman, they have developed a style that has thrilled fans young and old around Southern Ontario. Both have a strong history of performance, Brent through his former years touring with the rock band, Mankind, and Don through many years of coffee houses and festivals.

Two of the most outstanding features noted by audiences are Brent and Don’s vocal harmonies and the complex and spectacular fingerstyle interplay between the two guitars. They provide audiences of all ages with memorable instrumentals and songs with thought provoking lyrics. Some recent quotes clearly attest to their success:

“Your superb fingerstyle guitar and vocal harmonies are indeed a listening delight. The audience clearly enjoyed every piece you played and sang”.
Becky Ryder, Museums of Mississauga

“Don and Brent have a wonderful sound and the songs stay with you. I find myself singing them around the house and in the car. 



Red Rover is destined to become a Canadian classic. The instrumental pieces are moving and evocative”.
Jeannine Farrar

Don and Brent are not satisfied to keep their music local. They love playing for audiences large and small. With encouragement from virtually every quarter, their plans include more radio play, magazine coverage and travel around the province.
