Chris Emerson & Ty Bennett

This extraordinary duo is the exciting combination of two remarkable talents; mandolinist Chris Emerson and guitarist/singer-songwriter Ty Bennett. Together they have been recording and performing professionally with their newgrass group, Candlewyck as well as touring heavily as the Natty Boh Duo. Chris and Ty have gained the respect of musicians and music lovers alike. Their unique sound is a combination of Bennett's refined yet witty compositions and Emerson's fluid and inventive mandolin approach. The product of this pairing is a completely fresh and original style of acoustic music that defies categorization. Ty Bennett is a true craftsman who's writing is at once clever, heartfelt, and intellectual. His songs are not merely complimented but exalted by Chris Emerson's precise soloing and exceptional rhythmic technique.
