Duo Tangled Up In Quirky Folk

Pianist and singer/guitarist Carter carries off such quirky folk songs as "Farewell to Fiddler's Rim" (RealAudio excerpt) — recorded in Grammer's Portland, Ore., kitchen — with a demeanor that suggests a hairless-apparent to Lyle Lovett, and he meshes perfectly with the lovely singing and guitar, violin and mandolin playing of partner Grammer.
