ROOTBOUND is a duo that takes the traditional sounds of Appalachian old-time, bluegrass, and early country music and brings them into the present. Paying loving tribute to the duet sounds of such seminal groups as the Louvin Brothers and the Stanley Brothers and the wide-ranging repertoire of the Carter Family, singer/guitarist Deb Kauffmann and mandolinist/guitarist/singer Henry Koretzky infuse the classic repertoire with new material drawn from contemporary songwriters.
ROOTBOUND focuses on songs with timeless emotional connections and tight, soulful harmonies. The sound of two voices, mandolin, and guitar has infused American roots music for several decades. Deb and Henry carry on this tradition in a distinctive new-tyme/old-time mix of love songs, traditional ballads, and original compositions. These are interspersed with hard-driving fiddle tunes, ageless songs like Lily May Ledford's "Banjo Picking Girl," and innovative covers such as "Dark End of the Street" arranged as a Louvin-style waltz.
This Pennsylvania-based duo has just released their first full length recording, and is taking their music to new audiences who appreciate ROOTBOUND's eclectic mix of tradition with innovation. For more information, contact:
