Root 2 Music
ROOT2 MUSIC is the musical intersection of Deep South country blues and Celtic/Appalachian fiddle music. David Frank (guitar, harmonica, vocals) and Nancy Reid (fiddle, vocals) perform traditional and original blues with a distinctive Appalachian flavor.
When David moved up to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia where the sounds of Nancy’s fiddle had echoed for years, this duo formed a musical partnership that blends down home slide and traditional fiddle. Nancy has studied with Celtic fiddlers Ben Lennon and Liz Carroll. David early on started playing slide guitar because the strings were too hard to mash down on his old Kay guitar with the warped neck. What results is a unique blend of two musical roots – Root2 Music.
