The Milkwood Dreamers debut album, Hellfire and Bone, features duets clear as mountain water. He was writing music north of the Arctic Circle. She was strumming old Hank Williams songs at the kitchen table. Somehow they ended up at the same backyard jam in Calgary. Next thing you know he got down on one knee and offered up a cherry sunburst guitar instead of a wedding ring. Mel and Marti Smith are known for their harmonies that fit like a glove, flinty and sweet as honey. Martis won praise for her iridescent, pearly tones that speak of parched but beautiful landscapes.
