Timothy Hull & Margot Merah:
American singer and songwriter Timothy Hull met Margot even before they'd actually met. Timothy's songs travelled across the Atlantic making it to an Irish session in Amsterdam, where Margot first heard them. And Margot's album Daughters, with her duo The Lasses, came into Timothy's house via their mutual friend Kathryn Claire. So when the two songwriters stood face to face for the first time on Whidbey island in the spring of 2015, introductions were hardly necessary.
Both Timothy and Margot share a deep love for folk music, for songs that tell a story, for old as well as modern folk. As a duo they bring a variety of old songs and new ones, covers and originals, up tempo and ballads. Their voices blend beautifully and with their guitar lines intertwining Margot and Timothy make you forget yourself in their music. Strong but subtle guitar playing, heartfelt vocals, sometimes embellished with harmonica and shrutibox make for an atmospheric concert.
