PICTOU — A career that spans more than 45 years is one that many musicians can only dream about, but the chemistry and harmonies that are produced by twin brothers Brian and Bruce and younger brother Larry Good are one of the main reasons that The Good Brothers have remained a major part of the Canadian musical soundtrack.
The title of their latest album, Wide Awake Dreamin’, gives a great indication of what the guys have felt throughout most of their lifetime getting to do what they love doing — writing, recording and performing together.
Their music is timeless as it ranges from country to bluegrass to folk and touches many people with their lyrics that many can often relate to. While they’re well known for some of their covers like Brown Eyed Girl, Okie from Muskogee, or Fox on the Run, many of their own songs like Gone So Long, I Really Dug Myself a Hole This Time, or She Told Me So take the listener back to those classic country songs.
The band has garnered a number of nominations and awards over the years including major accomplishments of being inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame in 2004, the North American Country Music Association International Hall of Fame in Tennessee in 2016 and the “Lifetime Achievement Award” from the Toronto Musicians Association in 2015.
Having embarked on their 39th international tour, the band is pleased to be arriving back on Canadian soil and touring through the Maritimes this fall. They are looking forward to being back at the deCoste Performing Arts Centre on Sept. 27 at 7:30 p.m., and are looking forward to playing for their fans and anyone new to their music.
They will be bringing with them world-renowned fiddle and mandolin player, Ray Legere who hails from Sackville, N.B., whose own musical profession has been equally as vibrant over the past 35 years as he’s toured the world and recorded with top musicians in many musical genres, including Rita McNeil and John McDermott to name a couple.
