Graham Cooper @ orpington Folk Club, the Change of Horses 2009

Fine contemporary singer and guitarist who has worked with Harvey Andrews among others, and now lives in Portugal.  Graham has played at the club several times now and never fails to deliver an immaculate performance.

As most of you will know Brian Bruce died in October 2008.  One of the last thingsBrian did for the club was to book Graham Cooper a great friend and musical buddy.  To make Grahams night specialand to honour Brian’s memory we would like everyone to come if they can make it.

This is likely to be Graham’s last gig at the club as he now lives and works in Portugal.Graham is a great singer and musician, writing, arranging and composing music and song for people such as Harvey Andrews.

Graham has a new CD out called “The Lucky One”, one of the tracks is written by both Harvey Andrews and Graham Cooper called “Mindful Memories”
