austin and elliott are a folk duo from western massachusetts. their sound is focused on close harmonies, guitar and occasional percussion flourishes.
their latest album is called 'cradle and crow'. it's an album of original songs informed by the american folk tradition, dealing with stories of 'love gone wrong and death gone right', favorite topics of american roots music. i really enjoy the haunting melody of the first track, 'rocking the cradle'.
