Chris Brashear & Peter McLaughlin

“This is amazing musicianship that demands repeated listening!” ~ Flatpicking Guitar Magazine; “With a voice both plaintive and lyrical, and with a keen ear for language, Chris Brashear continues to be one of the finest writers and exponents of the sentimental song. ~ Bluegrass Unlimited

When National Flatpicking Guitar Champion Peter McLaughlin
and multi-instrumentalist Chris Brashear joined forces in 1992,
heads turned. Sibling-like harmonies and stunning instrumental
virtuosity were to be expected. But their singing and songwriting
put them in a class all by themselves. Drawing from the unique
stories and landscapes of the Southwest, as well as from their
own life experiences, these two kindred musicians have carved a
unique place for themselves in the grand tradition of duet singers
and in the larger world of acoustic music. Their second duet
recording, So Long Arizona, was released in 2008 on Dog Boy
Records. In addition to their years of playing together, they have
both have been noteworthy sidemen for some of acoustic music’s
best known groups, including Laurie Lewis & Grant Street
and Robin and Linda Williams and Their Fine Group.
In addition, they founded the bluegrass super group Perfect
Strangers, with Jody Stecher, Forrest Rose and Bob Black.
