Awesome folk

art10389

Folk duo Tina and Her Pony play what promises to be a remarkable, intimate concert Sunday evening at Abraham Lincoln Unitarian Universalist Congregation. The couple’s original songs echo the sound of Appalachia, while creating new waves with radical, queer lyrics, uncommon instrumentation and tight vocals. Tina and Her Pony formed in Asheville, N.C., in 2009 following the chance meeting of Tina Collins (tenor banjo, tenor ukulele, guitar, vocals) and Quetzal Jordan (cello, guitar, vocals). They released their full-length debut album in March 2012. It was mixed and mastered in Oakland, Calif., with Myles Boisen (The Tigerlilies; Kronos Quartet) and features trumpeter Chris Grady (also featured on Tom Waits’ Mule Variations).
