Rachel and Christian have come to be dear friends of Dave and IPC. We are happy they can be here for one last round of Blues Vespers before Dave retires and to promote their new album.
“They do things with fiddles you wouldn’t expect” NPR All Songs Considered “The Newest and Most Promising Voices in Americana”
“…a dynamic musical stew that covers a wide spectrum of acoustic-based roots music, hitting on old-time, folk and bluegrass, all delivered with a dash of rock and roll spunk.”
American Songwriter Magazine
“When each song ended, the two pressed tight into their microphones, savoring the last strains of the harmony – and even the bartenders seemed to be leaning forward breathlessly, awaiting someone to clap first. Their self titled recording aptly demonstrates the power of a spare, tightly-connected acoustic performance that is given room to evolve – for bluegrass fans, the lightning fast harmonic runs on dueling fiddle is worth the price of admission alone. But it’s the off-road experiments, especially from Christian’s biting bow strokes that will make future audiences take note.”
The Bluegrass Situation
“…Stirring together Old-Time flavors with the broader range of influences brought by an omnivorous musical appetite”
The Nashville Scene
“Really, really beautiful.”
Ricky Ross, BBC Scotland
“An unassumingly intriguing record…something out of the ordinary”
Steve Hunt, Roots Magazine (UK)
