Barwick & Siegfried Tue 21st May 2019
From major festivals in northern California to concert halls in Ireland and Canada, the acclaimed American acoustic roots music duo of Barwick & Siegfried has won over a sizeable following, one audience at a time. The duo of Kathy Barwick (guitar, vocals) and Pete Siegfried (mandolin, vocals) blends bluegrass, old-time country music and folk into an engaging Americana fusion showcasing Pete’s exceptional lead vocals, Kathy’s amazing guitar work and their sterling duet harmonies. Hailed by Bluegrass Unlimited as “two like-minded lovers of song who’ve found musical gold in their pairing,” the duo perfectly captures the power of two—two musicians, two voices and two instruments—harnessed to a singular artistic vision.
The duo is touring in support of its third album, Stones and Gravel, which perfectly captures its down-home but sophisticated sound. Like its predecessors The Trestle and Long Time Gone, Stones and Gravel is an honest, assured and eminently tuneful album that showcases the magical blend of this celebrated duo from Grass Valley, California. Bluegrass Breakdown lauds Pete’s “expansive tenor voice that can tell a story, croon a love song and bring a tear to the eye, all in one song” and Kathy’s ability “to make one guitar sound as strong as a band.” This will be third appearance by Barwick & Siegfried at the Mill Theatre,
