This duo was formerly part of a group called Inursha. The lead singer
has a beautiful Sarah McLaughlin-type voice and the musicianship of the
accompanist is out of this world! I saw them in action when they were
Inursha members. This is a great duo to go see, especially since they
get some audience participation and also because they were finalists in
last year's Lilith Fair competition. They showcased at the
Millenium Conference in Harrisburg, PA and played at the
Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts in State College in July 1999.
