This extraordinary duo is the exciting combination of two remarkable talents; mandolinist Chris Emerson and guitarist/singer-songwriter Ty Bennett. Chris and Ty have been recording and performing professionally with Candlewyck and their mandolin/guitar duo Natty Boh for over 15 years. They have gained the respect of musicians and music lovers alike. Their unique sound is a combination of Bennett's refined yet witty compositions and Emerson's fluid and inventive mandolin approach. The product of this pairing is a completely fresh and original style of acoustic music that defies categorization. Ty Bennett is a true craftsman who's writing is at once clever, heartfelt, and intellectual. His songs are not merely complimented but exalted by Chris Emerson's precise soloing and exceptional rhythmic technique.The award winning duo is currently booking and playing shows while putting the finishing touches on a forthcoming album due to be released 2013.
