In recent decades, too many folk songs have been burdened by over-sung vocals and cluttered arrangements. Second cousins Kacy Anderson and Clayton Linthicum, hailing from the Wood Mountain Uplands of Southern Saskatchewan, restore space to the art form by dealing in subtlety instead of tinsel. Kacy’s completely unforced refreshing vocals are always in her own distinct and natural timbre; Clayton’s instrumental talents serve every song with modesty.
Educated by their Grandfather/Great-Uncle respectively, Kacy and Clayton interpret and compose music inspired by the traditions of Southern Appalachia and the British Isles. Kacy’s vocals, virtuous and pure, weave seamlessly with Clayton’s finger-style guitar accompaniment. Though young, the duo has been playing together for over a decade and has created a distinctive, cohesive sound that delights and soothes the soul.
