Kathy & Carol
Their exquisitely close, haunting harmonies, remarkable for the use of shifting intervals, dissonance and unison set Kathy and Carol apart from other artists of the 1960s folk era. The duo received even more attention after the release of their eponymously named 1965 Elektra album, a gorgeous tribute to traditional British Isles and American folk ballads.
Since the recent re-release of Kathy & Carol on CD, the two have been singing together again, rediscovering their old arrangements and creating new ones. Their concert includes many of the songs from that famed album, along with plenty of other great material both old and new, drawn from traditional music, the Carter Family canon, and Carol's fine originals. Join the duo for an evening of sure-fire musical pleasure.
Carol McComb made her recording debut for Elektra Records with Kathy and Carol, her duo with Kathy Larisch. The success of the record led to tours with Mimi Fariña and to concert dates with the likes of James Taylor, Arlo Guthrie and Pete Seeger. Carol's early music has withstood the test of time. The web site All Music Guide recently proclaimed: "Although slightly precious in its high-voiced chastity, Kathy and Carol is an acoustic mid-'60s folk album of considerable bittersweet charm and purity. It's better than many traditional acoustic folk albums of its era and worthy of reissue." (Critic Richie Unterberger.) - Elektra Records, 1965
..."their voices intertwine as if each were the mirror image of the other. Their music is innocent ---innocent of malice and greed---and it is unabashedly lovely." - Nat Hentoff, Cosmopolitan
