Progressive treatments of traditional Nordic and Scots music
As Sound an Echo, Minnesota musicians Rachael Kilgour and Sara Pajunen bridge their distinct yet complementary musical histories within traditional music. Rachael is an award-winning songwriter whose sincere and lyric-driven work has been heard at Lincoln Center and The Sundance Film Festival. A classically trained violinist, Sarak is a sound artist, composer and an acclaimed progressive practitioner of Nordic folk music. As a duo, their sound is a union of their individual commitments: Sara's sonic-focused and contemplative arrangements complement Rachael's fluency in storyline and emotional vulnerability.
