One of the compelling qualities of motorhome troubadours Kevin Danzig and Cat Woolley is the distinctive, articulate voice they breathe into each of their folk tunes. The evocative power of their music is fueled by warm, impassioned vocals, the crisp rhythmic interplay of Danzig's full-bodied Taylor 615 with Woolley's bright mandolin, and a vivid lyrical style that delivers tales with twists, coloring them with allegory, humor, and an upbeat spirit. The acoustic folk duo has been touring much of the southeastern U.S. and the festival circuit in their motorhome since they married in 1994. 2003 MAINSTAGE PERFORMANCES include Kerrville Folk Festival, Texas/New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival/Savannah Folk Festival, GA/Dogwood Festival, GA/Riverbend Festival, Chattanooga/Mandarin Folk Festival, FL. Danzig, the principal songwriter and lead vocalist, calls to mind Cat Stevens, and shows a lively, theatrical flair for vocal phrasing and nuance. Together with Wooley's vocal harmonies, the two create a richly enmeshed counterpoint to their acoustic rhythms. Danzig and Woolley jokingly tag their style as 'Dysfunctional Folk.' Danzig has absorbed traditional British and American folk; country and blues; and the inventive arrangements of Crosby, Stills and Nash, and Simon and Garfunkel. But he says his melodic sensibility has been equally shaped by Lennon and McCartney. Woolley cites Janis Ian as a major influence, for her 'eclectic mix of harmonies and themes.'
