David Kraai and Amy Laber have each been performing their original material over many a mile and storied year. These songs take on a new shape as the musical charms of each accentuate the other. Country harmonies, sweet banjo, tasty mandolin, twangy guitars, beautiful autoharp and soulful harmonica carry this duo from The Carter Family to Neil Young straight into their own right as a patch on the tapestry of American music. They have shared stages and bills with some of their heroes like Pete Seeger, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Dr. Ralph Stanley, Leon Russell, Charlie Louvin, Jim Lauderdale and more. With positive press, radio play and several albums behind them, the future continues to remains wide open.
