They specialize in the soulful grit of old time Appalachian mountain music, with their original songs blending seamlessly alongside their traditional repertoire. Their tight instrumentals have been compared to past fiddle and guitar family duos like Pate and Leroy Martin or Doc and Oscar Harper. Both are equally inspired by mountain musicians like Roscoe Holcomb and Ola Belle Reed as they are to revered songsmiths like Gillian Welch and Townes Van Zandt. Instrument swapping is common during a performance between two guitars, banjo and fiddle, and fiddle and guitar. With Asheville North Carolina as their home base, they still travel most of the year and play concert halls and festivals like Old Tone Music Festival, Watermelon Park Bluegrass Festival, and the Blackpot Festival in Lafayette, Louisiana. In November 2018 they were featured artists at the Dorrigo Folk School and Festival in Australia, and 2019 they will tour the U.K. and Germany as part of the Bluegrass Jamboree.
