'Tales of Love, War and Death by Hanging'

Ray Cooper, otherwise known as ‘Chopper’ from Oysterband, is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.

The Oxford show:

Ray returns to Oxford's Holywell Room with a totally acoustic preview of his forthcoming album ‘Tales of Love, War and Death by Hanging’.

Ray is giving only 3 preview shows before joining Oysters for their forthcoming tours of Denmark and Canada, in March and April. The solo shows are in Rugby, Oxford and Sweden.

At these shows, Ray will accompany himself on cello and guitar (but not both at the same time!). The wonderful acoustics of the Holywell Room allow him to perform without any amplification.

This is a rare opportunity to see Ray perform in the intimate setting of the oldest surviving public music room in Europe, built in the 1740's for natural music.

Doors 7:30pm, Music 8:00, Finish 10:30.


His forthcoming album is to be released in May 2010 on the Westpark Music label and distributed in the UK by Proper Distribution. To listen to preview tracks please visit www.myspace.com/raycooperchopper
