Pocket Full of Lizards
Sarah Goslee Reed and Lisa Hill Biales grew up playing and listening to very different kinds of music, and each of them discovered a desire to sing and express herself through the kind of personal song that comes from within. After meeting in 1991, the two formed Prairie Orchid. In the many years since then, they have entertained thousands with their musical tales of childhood, parenthood, love, and change. Whether entertaining children in a school auditorium or adults and families in an intimate coffeehouse setting, their music will fit the occasion. With distinct abilities and creative strengths, the duo will sing a cowboy song, reminisce with the audience about a favorite childhood book, demonstrate hand motions, and teach everyone how to say (and sing!) hello and goodbye in several foreign languages. The harmony of their voices, and the chorus of their guitars, banjo, dobro, violin, bass, and accordion is an uplifting experience. Families and teachers love Prairie Orchid's CDs: the award winning "Pocket Full of Lizards", "New Day", and "Plant A Little Seed". Both artists are accomplished songwriters and have several albums that feature their original music, including some new releases: Sarah's "It's About Time" and Lisa's "Come to Me" and "Chasing Away the Blues". They have performed in numerous arts festivals, concert series, museums, libraries, and schools. Although they live in different parts of Ohio and drive many miles to get together, the hours spent on back country roads leave time for reflection and the beginnings of many new songs.
