Between White & Black
Classic blues of the 1920's, early jazz and 'slice-of-life (original) songs that ring with truth, wit and experience,' The Washington Post, Barbara Martin and Mac Walter combine a healthy respect for the roots of American music with top of the line musicianship. 'A bonafide finger-picker and blues stylist,' Loudoun Times-Mirror, Martin is equally at home wailing the blues or singing a tender ballad. The acoustic duo's shows feature women blues singers of the 20's, such as Bessie Smith, reviving their music with anecdotes from their colorful lives. Typical performances also include early jazz greats Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald.
