Event description

Description

Old-time, classic country, bluegrass


OLD PAINT DUO is Miriam Sonstenes and Jeff Dill, who have been making acoustic music steeped in American roots traditions for over a decade. Based in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, and using the guitar and fiddle as their base and leaping off point, these two serve up old country songs, Texas fiddle tunes, old time square dance music and original songs with grace and style.

With their full length debut released May 10th, 2019, Old Paint Duo is gearing up for an exciting year of touring and performing. The album features original songwriting, covers of classic country duets by the likes of Hank Williams, The Louvin Brothers and Dolly Parton & Porter Wagoner, as well as original and traditional old time fiddle tunes. The album was recorded and produced by Tad Ruszel, in Victoria, BC.

Old Paint’s musical travels have taken them to Ireland, North Carolina, Louisiana, and across Canada on VIA Rail’s Artists on Board Program. The duo recently opened for John Reischman and The Jaybirds, and in March 2018 completed a Home Routes house concert tour in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Miriam also gigs regularly with the award winning roots trio The Sweet Lowdown, as well as Victoria’s progressive acoustic outfit The Unfaithful Servants. Jeff is a member of Riverside Bluegrass Band and both have recently taught at various camps in and around BC, including Vancouver Island Music Workshop, Nimblefingers Bluegrass & Old Time Workshop, and Mountain Fever Bluegrass Camp.

With a tight vocal blend on classic duets of love and longing, heartfelt songwriting and compelling fiddle tunes old and new, Old Paint Duo delivers a warm and inviting sound, borne of a deep love of traditional music and contemporary story telling.
