How Win Friends and be Influenced by People

How Win Friends and be Influenced by People
The title of Eric Brace and Peter Cooper’s wry, two-part-harmony-centric country-folk collaboration You Don’t Have to Like Them Both makes a tongue-in-cheek argument for what duos have on solo acts: variety. Clearly, they’re willing to think even more broadly than that. Besides the songs—theirs, Todd Snider’s, David Olney’s and others’—this show is about strength in numbers larger than two, and about throwing a spotlight on the connections between all of them. For instance, Brace and Cooper both grew up regularly admiring Mike Auldridge’s Dobro playing with the Seldom Scene in D.C.; Auldridge was powerfully influenced by steel guitarist Lloyd Green and composed an instrumental tribute in his honor; Lloyd played on Brace and Cooper’s album. (Both Lloyd and Auldridge will reportedly be on the next one.) Here’s the kicker: This far into their careers, Green and Auldridge have never shared the stage before. That’ll be something.
