« on: March 29, 2015, 08:14:18 AM »
 I've been listening to this duo for a couple of years now,but recently I have been playing them more and more, if you like Old Time or early country/bluegrass....they may be right up your street.A bit Norman and Nancy,but different . Also Oldtimers...you might check out the South Carolina Broadcasters,also very,very good. Showing Now...on Youtube...for your viewing and listening pleasure.

Agreed, I only became aware of them in the last 6 months or so. Really listening a lot to their new album, like it a lot. Someone posted their new video on another thread here. Their vocal harmonies owe a LOT to Gillian Welch and David Rawlings imo.

As already reported here, this piece bears watching again and again and again! And I make no apologies for mentioning it again. Even when they interest me, I often switch off YouTube videos half way in. This one, however, has been watched in its entirety many times.

Yes, that's a lovely track and well worth exploring more of their music.

Jason makes a hell of a banjo, too (wish I had one! but I've played them).

They're well worth catching in concert too. (UK weenies just missed a tour.) Pharis is exceedingly charming. OK, Jason seems very nice, too, and the banjos are beautiful.

After taking Pharis's vocal class at the PT vocal workshop, years ago... I of course fell immediately in love and was really disappointed to hear about Jason!  His banjos are lovely however.  Pharus is also a helluva rhythm guitarist - I watched her play break neck rhythm with a fiddler for at east 20 minutes.

So Michael, have you bought the new CD?
