Allison de Groot & Tatiana HargreavesÕs self-titled debut album is a powerful opening statement. The record not only showcases the duoÕs impressive musicianship, but is a reflection on which voices we seek to hear as we explore the expansive, diverse canon of American roots music. The albumÕs 13 tracks feature lesser-known American fiddle and banjo songs from African American duoÊNathan Frazier & Frank Patterson, centenarian Arkansas fiddlerÊViolet Hensley, bluegrass pioneerÊAlice Gerrard, contemporary master tunesmithÊJudy HymanÊ(The Horse Flies), and more. Already leaders in the young generation of roots musicians, de Groot has become known for her intricate clawhammer banjo work withÊMolskyÕs Mountain Drifters, while Hargreaves has brought her powerhouse fiddling to the stage withÊGillian WelchÊandÊLaurie Lewis. Together they create a sound that is adventurous, masterful, and original, as they expand on the eccentricities of these old songs, while never losing sight of what makes them endure.
