Very interesting interview; thanks! And the sound they make together is great, though I kept waiting for, and WANTING, to hear them do a piece that had more rock/blues flavor... I'm sure she sound great doing that.

I heard AK & RP sing Chris Smithers "Killing the Blues" today on Studio 360...

Fantastic! Gorgeous! What a duo! I cannot wait to get the CD.

My congratulations to the artists and the show for promoting them on NPR.
