Pharis & Jason Romero @ The Three Horseshoes, Towersey
Tuesday 10 February 2015, 7:30 pm - 10:15 pm
Veterans of The Haints Old Time Stringband and custom banjo makers who are endorsed by some of the biggest names in the business, Pharis & Jason Romero share a common love of many things, not least the wilderness log cabin they share in the northern woods of British Columbia.
Surrounded by nature, they spend their days building some of the finest musical instruments in North America – and singing and playing the music they adore.
On their debut release as a duo, they created the kind of impact that can only be made by two people who live so closely together that they are utterly ‘at one’. The songs are beautiful creations that have either been lovingly sourced from old recordings or written by Pharis.
The couple are both well-known in old-time music circles – Pharis for her work with the seminal British Columbia group Outlaw Social and Jason for Romero Banjos, recognised as one of the premier workshops.
The last album was the final selection in a trilogy of releases that have seen the duo exploring American roots music with some other kindred spirits, all driven with a passion, craft and subtlety that most would think lost today.
