They’ve rocked festival main stages, toured with the Indigo Girls, and distilled their songwriting, musicianship, and humor into a unique contemporary folk duo. There’s magic in their contrast, a yin and yang, as they trade off lead vocals, an array of instruments and a feisty, sophisticated style. Listen to them here!
