Almost Perfect Strangers Reunion
Almost Perfect Strangers Reunion: almost all of the Perfect Strangers bluegrass band are back together for a reunion show.
Chris Brashear is a charismatic singer with a high, clear voice, a dynamic instrumentalist, and a songwriter with a penchant for writing memorable, perhaps classic, bluegrass songs on topics other than failed love. He has been Laurie Lewis's bassist, the fiddler for Kentucky Rose, and played jazz violin with the Maurizio Geri Swingtet. Chris is the band's fiddler.
National Flatpicking Champion Peter McLaughlin is the band's guitarist. He is equally powerful as a rhythm player and soloist. Peter played in Laurie Lewis's band for several years, records for Dog Boy Records, and is the elder brother (and original mentor) of (Johnson Mountain Boy) David McLaughlin. Peter and Chris have a special musical telepathy that is one of the Perfect Strangers not-so-secret weapons.
Jody Stecher is a music innovator of considerable stature who also is a repository of tradition. Jody received a 1999 Indy Award, has been a Grammy finalist several times for his work with Kate Brislin, and is an inspired song finder and arranger. He sings true bluegrass style and plays surprising mandolin with a big, round tone.
Paul Knight's list of accolades is as impressive as for any bass player. He has been playing with Peter Rowan in various configurations for over 15 years. His driving acoustic bass has been part of recordings and live performances with a wide range of musicians including Jim Lauderdale, Laurie Lewis, and Crooked Jades, Paul is host to his own music series, Paul Knight & Friends, in his hometown of Point Reyes Station.
