tennessee husband and wife vocal harmony duo forest mountain hymnal has a very despcriptive band name. their songs are tree-shaded, traditionally informed ballads and love tunes, sung with voices and harmonies as silvery as a stream high up in the mountains. at times, they sound like hymns. they also include some interesting woodwinds and other production touches.
this group really does its homework, too, in terms of folk music. they are also hard at work on an album of ballads from the archive of john jacob niles, noted song collector and folk musician, called 'dear balladeer'.
