(2016 concert reviews)
Their range is staggering. Martha is able to achieve simultaneously in a single melody line crackle and velvet combos. It's crazy. Her song, “Around About” moves from high to low in one sentence, sporting blues and passion.
Martha is akin to a palomino; Lucy is a lovely loon.
On “Baby Rocking Medley”, the lyric offers wailing newborns up for adoption willingly; while from the cover of Richard Thompson’s “The End of the Rainbow”, it was sad. The song says: “There’s nothing to grow up for anymore”, one believes this is the real song that hit the most morbid of lullaby songs in the repertoire delivered in the concert.
Full of family anecdotes punched with self-deprecating humour, the pair invited us into their lives through their stories and their magical songs.
