Andrea Wollstadt and Rob Duquette make up the funky-folk-pop duo. Rob sings and plays guitar, Andrea sings and plays sax, flute and keyboards. They make up a unique sound all their own, and they incorporate many styles of music into their original material.
The couple had their wedding ceremony the same month as their first CD release, back in late 2000. Shortly thereafter, they embarked on a national tour, performing in cities such as New York, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, Cleveland and many others. New York City's "The Village Voice" called their first CD: "Amazing."
Formerly a part of the Cambridge and Boston acoustic scene, they began recording their new CD shortly after renovating their new home in Southern Maine. "Cactus Highway is the most rare of acoustic acts, they are a duo of true sophistication who merge folk, pop, jazz in flowing, cool, unpretentious ways." (The Boston Herald).
They've preformed with such artists as Aztec Two Step, Catie Curtis, Roy Bookbinder, Greg Greenway, David Massengill, etc,.
Their music has been played on radio worldwide. "This Talented duo has a new release out, they are super savvy players, somewhat of a hybrid folk-jazz, No doubt
excellent." --Chris Darling, Us Folk WMPG, Portland, Maine.
