Birdy and the Bow Tie
Sweethearts Alison and Wil play acoustic early jazz with their own originals thrown in the mix. They’re inspired by popular music from the first half of the 20th century such as Tin Pan Alley, 1920’s blues, 1930’s jazz, black and white musicals, folk, and early country. Alison Marae plays a sweet ukulele, sings a Billie Holiday inspired vocal and taps a rhythm soft shoe. Wil Forbis plays a mean lead acoustic guitar, has a Cab Calloway scat, and croons a jazzy melody. Together they make sweet harmony.
