Hoot & Holler
Mark & Amy are songwriters dedicated to honing their craft, both equally influenced by wordsmiths like Gillian Welch and Townes Van Zandt as they are to authentic mountain musicians like Roscoe Holcomb and Ola Belle Reed. In other words, when they sing something new, it sounds old: their music is a mixture of both.
Instrument swapping is common during a performance. Sometimes they don two guitars, other times switching to fiddle and banjo, all the while seamlessly blending their vocals as they sing songs infused with the vitality of the landscapes which they have traveled. They strive to honor the ancient sounds of those who came before while bringing their own voice to the stage.
And yes, the singing and playing is top-notch.
We'll have a pot luck an hour before the concert and a jam session afterward.
