Roanoke County native Allen Thompson returned to town from Nashville, Tenn., on Oct. 26 for a show at Kirk Avenue Music Hall. It was a shared bill, with Nashville’s Eric Brace & Peter Cooper.
These original acts played some fine music, making for a good Americana Saturday night at the music hall, which had a nice turnout of friends, family and music lovers. I got some cell phone video of a few songs, and these turned out best. Brace and Cooper performing Cooper’s “Opening Day” and a new song from ATB, “Don’t Think Twice.” The latter has a bit of fuzziness in the sound, but the song it strong enough to get you through all that.
Since we can only fit two videos on the page, here’s a link to a third, Brace and Cooper performing Brace’s “Tranquility Base.” You can tell this one was written by a reporter!
