Suzanne Jaroszynski is rapidly gaining a national reputation as a song stylist. Her rich, powerful voice is equally suited to sentimental ballads and old time gospel shouters. Suzanne is a repeat first place winner in the vocal competition at the prestigious Mt Airy North Carolina Fiddlers Convention singing her unaccompanied arrangement of Little Carpenter. Her solid rhythm guitar provides a firm foundation for the duo's sound.
For nearly 30 years Jim Hale has been at the forefront of the claw hammer banjo revival. His command of touch, tone, and timing creates a lyrical background for the singing and punches through on instrumental solos.
