Carrie & Michael Kline
Michael and Carrie Kline perform country harmony duets from coal mining songs to gospel, family songs and front porch music. Listeners may find themselves dancing a waltz to "Fiddler Jones," the song that celebrates the role of music and old-time fiddlers in our lives and our communities, those who play for family and friends or local dances, or those who play for no one at all. Carrie and Michael's voices carry the songs with truth and authenticity, and their guitars and haunting harmonies get you where you live, evoking the times that really matter, time with family and friends, wrapped in a patchwork quilt of vivid imagery. Kitchen songs. You can smell the biscuits baking.
Tonight's concert is co-sponsored by The Folk Music Society of New York.
