Fantastic Duo, Every Show is Great!

Between Steve's catalog of songs (including Darcy Farrow, Grapes on the Vine, The River & more) and fantastic guitar playing, and Cindy's beautiful interpretation of traditional folk songs and her own compositions, their shows are chock full of great songs and great music. And, to top it off, they both have beautiful voices!
