Coope Boyes and Simpson
2017 will see Coope Boyes and Simpson embark on their farewell tour at venues throughout the UK and their final festival appearances as a trio. This will be a celebration of their career, and will feature material from across their entire repertoire. Their harmonies are so thrilling you don’t notice there aren’t any instruments and their song writing is amongst the best the UK produces. There is simply nothing like them. Make sure you come and see them on their final year.
After twenty four years with a career that has encompassed at least a dozen albums, numerous tours and festival appearances, as well as a Folk Awards nomination, Coope Boyes and Simpson have released what will be their final studio album.
Coda is be a collection of songs, mainly self-penned or drawn from the tradition, covering issues such as refugees, Iraq and climate change. With an anger undimmed, Coope Boyes and Simpson are returning to their roots and completing the circle that started with Funny Old World.
The album was realeased September 2016.http://coopeboyesandsimpson.co.uk
Coda is a magnificent conclusion to a magnificent career; but somehow I still can’t believe it will be the last word from CB&S.
