With 10 instruments between them and 53 strings to tune Otter Creek (www.ottercreekduo.com) burst onto the national Folk scene in 2012 with back to back hit albums on the Folk Charts. In the 5 years since the husband and wife duo began playing together, Otter Creek has won multiple awards for their virtuosic instrumentals, adept songwriting, and visionary arrangements of traditional and original tunes. They have drawn praise from around the country leading one critic to describe them as “a duo that is both a technical marvel and tastefully perfect.” Their second album Shiver Into Spark (September 2012) has garnered attention as a collection of “songs that appeal to the heart and mind as well as the ear” and a work of “superb musicianship underpinned by stunning technique” (Greg Harness, Rootsworld Magazine).
