Cath & Phil Tyler, The One Ensemble and Neil Davidson
This article is from 2010.
New Jersey natives Cath & Phil Tyler’s forthcoming second album, The Hind Wheels of Bad Luck, sees them heading direct to the source, mining traditional American seams such as the folky storytelling of Anne and Frank Warner, the husband and wife team who sparked a US mini-folk revival, and the choral sounds of the Deep South’s Sacred Harp songbook. The couple’s modern approach to folk has been lauded for its earthiness and gritty reality and this live performance should be a lo-fi, pastoral treat.
