Peter Kessler and Gail Fratar - Take Me Up

Peter Kessler and Gail Fratar bring a unique blend of vocal harmonies and sparkling instrumentation to an unusual repertoire of traditional and folk-based original songs. Over the years, both Peter and Gail have become multi-instrumental, and fluent in beautifully blended harmonies across a range of old-time, swing, bluegrass, and country music.

Here's what Jody Stecher says:

“This is an exceptional album and timely. The instrumental work is unusual and creative, well recorded, and features combinations and textures never heard before. The leads are also both colorful and free of cliche...this is a really fine album.”
