Bobby & Christine are an emerging folk act featuring one guitar, two voices, and a variety of percussive elements. The mix is primarily interpretations of deeper tracks of well-known artists, infused with some original songs and original flatpicking instrumentals.
Bobby’s influences include The G. Dead, Neil Young and Bob Dylan. Christine has a mellow and smooth voice,.a nice ear for traditional folk harmonies, and tends towards Sarah Maclachlan, K.D. Lang, and The Indigo Girls. Vocally she sounds a bit like Mary Chapin Carpenter ….like Mary she makes sure you can hear the words she sings.
They present a bit of a boy/girl odd couple….though it comes off rather well. Bobby ‘s personable, bold, gravelly vocals combine with Christine’s soft, fluid tone that lends interest and variety. His skill as a guitarist gives the listener something to grab and hang onto. They break a lot of rules, improvising not only chord progressions, guitar riffs and harmonies, but often the lyrics themselves.
You will hear a fair number of tunes you recognize, but will find their arrangements both dramatic and refreshing.
LIVE MUSIC, Fridays from 4-6 pm in Moberg Park!
