ALLISON DE GROOT & TATIANA HARGREAVES
Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves, two musicians on the forefront of American traditional music, join forces in this powerful new duo. Together, theycreate a sound that is adventurous, masterful, and original, as they expand on the eccentricities of old songs while never losing sight of what makes them endure. The duo not only showcases impressive musicianship, but reflects on which voices we seek to hear as we explore the expansive, diverse canon of American roots music. Already leaders in the young generation of roots musicians, de Groot has become known for her intricate clawhammer banjo work with Molsky’s Mountain Drifters, while Hargreaves has brought her powerhouse fiddling to the stage with Gillian Welch and Laurie Lewis. Their debut, self-titled album released with Free Dirt Records is a powerful opening statement, one not to be missed!
