Tim O'Brien & Darrell Scott
January 18, 2014
Fletcher Opera Theater
Two outstanding musicians will perform side-by-side in Raleigh for one night only! Tim O’Brien & Darrell Scott released a collaborative project last year, and they are currently working on a new studio album,Memories and Moments, due out in September. Last year’s project, We’re Usually A Lot Better Than This, is a live album that was recorded over the course of two gigs at the Grey Eagle in Asheville.
Scott and O’Brien are old friends who met in a lobby of a Nashville music company 15 years ago and first played together at a “pickin’ party” thrown by Sam Bush.
We’re Usually A Lot Better Than This features songs by both Scott and O’Brien, plus a generous portion of covers — Townes Van Zandt’s “White Freightliner Blues,” Lefty Frizzell’s “Mom and Dad’s Waltz,” Hank Williams’ “House of Gold,” Gordon Lightfoot’s “Early Morning Rain,” and Keith Whitley’s “You Don’t Have to Move That Mountain.”
Save the date to catch O’Brien and Scott sharing the stage in Raleigh!
