Rebecca Folsom and Sally Barris
A seasoned vocalist she moves fluidly through luscious, smoky almost speaking tones, and then delivers Janis Joplinesque impassioned wailing. Folsom believes music is all about sharing the human connection, feeling our joys and sorrows, and always offering a bit of hope. Rebecca shines when performing in a spare acoustic setting and then explodes with the blazing intensity of her band. In either setting audiences are in for an uplifting, joyous, and truly moving musical ride.
Sally Barris is an A-list Nashville songwriter who has had songs covered by such top-level artists as Kathy Mattea, Martina McBride, and Lee Ann Womack. Her song "Let The Wind Chase You", recorded by Trisha Yearwood and Keith Urban, received a Grammy nomination for vocal collaboration in 2009.
While her writing credits mightily impress, fans and peers are most captivated by her bright spirit and expressive mountain soprano. Dirty Linen says "Barris knows how to write lyrics that are as forthright as a stream of clear water and how to support them with melodies that share that quality".
When Sally is not touring solo, she is known as "Sister Waymore" in the power trio; The Waymores with Tom Kimmel and Don Henry.
In the last 2 years, the Minnesota native has performed Mountain Stage, New Bedford Summer Fest and The Kerrville Folk Festival. Sally is currently touring with her new cd "Wilder Girl".
