Two of the most acclaimed singers in traditional American music, Jody Stecher and Kate Brislin possess an amazing ability to capture the essence of a song, providing a masterful setting for their soulful harmonies with superb fiddle, guitar, banjo, and mandolin playing. (In the words of the late great Utah Phillips, "If the great swirling mass of folk music has a solid persistent unwavering center, that is who Kate and Jody are.") The duo has twice been nominated for Grammy Awards, as well as being a gold mine of traditional music.

Laurel Bliss and Clifford Perry have been playing old time and bluegrass music together for 30 years in the Pacific Northwest. Old time banjo player Molly Tenenbaum described their music beautifully: "If there ever was a definition for the word ‘twine,' Cliff and Laurel embody it, their voices simultaneously two separate and one together. Carter Family, Delmore Brothers, parlor songs, and hymns, every song in their repertoire is a beautiful gem and their music is rich with emotion—not sentiment, but a deep, pure pull toward the essential. Their music remembers that time before country, bluegrass, and old-time split apart-and brings us to the present, re-grounded, refreshed, and reminded of our own full natures."
