Building on a promising start as winners and headliners of the 1973 Northeastern Intercollegiate Folk Festival, our musical partnership has always been central to our life together. Even with jobs, school and kids, we’ve never stopped writing, recording and performing our songs from coast to coast in coffeehouses, churches, house concerts, schools and on college campuses. You’re just as likely to find us singing at conferences, interfaith events, benefits and peace and justice rallies.

Our songs are steeped in folk, R&B, rock, jazz, gospel and classical (sometimes all at once), accompanied on guitar, flute and piano, and sung in our signature harmony.

One listener describes our music as, “exciting, moving, thought-provoking and fun”. Another celebrates, “songs so alive, you want to dance, inspiring us with their clarity, strength and imagination.” To see what some others have written, check out the “Reviews and Highlights” page. 

This site is still under construction, so we don’t have the music up just yet. Mean-while, if you want to know what we sing about, toggle “Read Lyrics”. Here’s a taste:

 Brother of my heart, sister of your soul

Scattered fragments form a whole

Together we share the mystery

of serving love to be free
