Amy & Karen Play 15 Old Time Quality Tunes & Songs
The critics say... 'This is a solid debut duo effort by two West Coast musicians... The instrumental work is precise and authentic sounding while the singing is also strong... Everything is exposed in a duet and these gals do not falter.' -- The Old-Time Herald 'These two ladies have definitely captured that ol' homey country sound on their debut album with a barebones acoustic assembly of banjo, fiddle, guitar and voice. They cover the likes of The Carter Family, Bruce Springsteen, Woody Guthrie among others and a couple of traditional numbers as well. Lovingly packaged in a screenprinted cardboard sleeve too! For fans of Freakwater, Virginia Dare, Trailer Bride.' -- Aquarius Records About Amy & Karen: Amy & Karen love to play straight-ahead dance tunes, creepy crookedy melodies, and sing 2-part harmonies on songs where everybody dies. With Karen on guitar, fiddle and vocals, and Amy on fiddle, banjo, guitar, and vocals, they create a rich and changing texture of sounds. Their playing together has a melodic sweetness that rides high over an infectious and driving old-time groove. Our first CD is here! We are very pleased to have produced Amy & Karen play 15 "Old Time" Quality Tunes & Songs, with a beautiful old-fashioned cover design and eco-friendly packaging. This recording represents some of the music that we have honed performing all over the West Coast. Amy & Karen have had a blast playing at festivals, clubs, openings, private events and farmer's markets, from Bellingham, WA, to Goleta, CA, and many points in between.
