The Malpass Brothers will perform a 1950’s reminiscent concert at the Ware Center on Saturday, April 2, at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $25 reserved seating and include complimentary beverage service which begins at 7 PM. The Ware Center is located at 42 N. Prince Street.


Brothers Christopher and Taylor Malpass, with their classic country sound, are sure to send country music fans back generations with their live performances. From their 1950’s style hair to the way they move on stage the Malpass Brothers don’t just sound retro, they are retro. Influenced by the likes of Johnny Cash, Ernest Tubb, Elvis Presley, Faron Young, Waylon Jennings, Marty Robbins, the Louvin Brothers, the Wilburn Brothers and many other artists from that era, the Malpass Brothers have been able to fine tune their performances into a unique, but current style of traditional country music and comedic banter. Christopher on acoustic guitar-vocals and Taylor on guitar and mandolin-vocals are joined by Chris Malpass on bass, Greg Adair, drums and Clyde Mattocks on steel guitar.

The Malpass Brothers’ newest release is their first self-titled album, featuring songs such as “Here in Alberta I’ll Stay,” “I Met a Friend of Yours Today,” and “Baby, We’re Really in Love.”

 “My brother Taylor and I do the type of music we do because this music speaks to us, and speaks to the souls of its listeners. For us, traditional country music is the ‘real deal’ – every song portrays life’s joys, heartaches, problems and happiness. It comes from the heart, and has depth and truth. Nothing is sugar coated. Our goal, really, is to see this music be revived, to help ensure it doesn’t fade away. It is so encouraging to have young people come to our shows with a new interest in our ‘old music.’ Being able to introduce what we love to another generation feels like a great accomplishment for us. We want this music to be around for our children’s children…” — Christopher Malpass

The Malpass Brothers were steeped in country music from an early age. As young boys their grandfather began teaching them how to play music by Hank Williams, Sr., Merle Haggard, Porter Wagoner, Kitty Wells and Ernest Tubb on the guitar. With traditional country music ingrained into them, it only seemed fitting that they would carry on that tradition. Little did they know that after years of gigs and performances across the U.S., in 2008 the brothers would begin opening for one of their grandfather’s favorites, the legendary Merle Haggard, and continue to follow Haggard all across the U.S. and into Canada. They have also opened for Ray Price, Marty Stuart, Rhonda Vincent, Willie Nelson, and many other famous music artists.



Tickets are $25 for reserved seating, and include complimentary beverage service.
