Allison DeGroot and Tatiana Hargreaves are two women on the forefront of American traditional acoustic music. Clawhammer banjo innovator Allison de Groot (Molskys Mountain Drifters) and fiddler Tatiana Hargreaves (Laurie Lewis, Dave Rawlings Machine) join forces to explore the boundaries of Appalachian stringband music. Having both studied with musicians such as Bruce Molsky and Darol Anger in addition to more traditional masters, Allison and Tatiana share a musical vocabulary that reflects on tradition while also utilizing new techniques and sounds.
De Groot & Hargreavess self-titled debut album (March 2019) is a powerful opening statement for the duo. The record not only showcases the their impressive musicianship, but is a reflection on which voices we seek to hear as we explore the expansive, diverse canon of American roots music. Together they create a sound that is adventurous, masterful, and original, as they expand on the eccentricities of these old songs, while never losing sight of what makes them endure.
