Episode 89 - Calico Drifters

November 24th, 2009 · Comments

The Isthmus' Rich Albertoni described this Madison duo’s 2009 release, Turning Home, as..."a set of down-tempo acoustic love songs rooted in jazz, blues and folk. The CD thrives on the marriage of Thomas Burns’ delicate and reflective songwriting and Sue Prodell’s emotional vocals...(with) an element of mystery." In their own words, "Sunburned Americana".
