The reunion of singer-songwriter Teresa Trull and pianist/singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist Barbara Higbie, is a long awaited musical event. Their new duo CD Playtime captures the excitement and versatility that has endeared them to audiences since their 1983 release Unexpected. Critically acclaimed in publications such as People, Cashbox, Billboard, The Washington Post and The Boston Globe their vibrant fusion of energy and talent has earned them an enthusiastic and persistent following. Their collaborative joy is at once irresistible, irrefutable and engagingly quirky. Musically they range over a terrain that varies from blues and gospel to folk, rock , jazz and championship fiddle playing. They have shared stages with Tracy Chapman, k.d. Lang, Whoopie Goldberg, Nancy Griffith and Ferron among others. Combining gut emotion, technical brilliance and pure joie de vivre Trull and Higbie are a musical force to be reckoned with and thoroughly enjoyed.
