Singers Carol McComb and Kathleen Larisch return to the Freight stage with their gorgeous interpretations of British and Appalachian ballads, country tunes, Carter Family songs, and Carol’s timeless originals. The duo’s unique sense of harmony is remarkable for its use of shifting intervals, haunting dissonances, and counterpoint, and their a cappella songs send shivers down the spine.
Kathy and Carol began singing together in high school in Southern California, and performed extensively on the folk circuit in the 1960s, sharing stages with the New Lost City Ramblers, Bill Monroe, Phil Ochs, and many more. The duo's self-named 1965 Elektra album remains a timeless tribute to traditional British Isles and American folk music. After decades of pursuing separate careers, the pair reunited their luminous voices in 2005, resumed touring, and released a new CD, Keepsake.
