West Virginia Serenade

by Keith & Joan Pitzer

Rich vocal blends, fine flatpicking and elegantly understated adornments of whistles, mandolin and bass frame a spellbinding lyrical and musical meditation on Appalachian beauty: an audio tour through a special place for solace and reverie.

Album Notes
Keith & Joan Pitzer blend rich vocal harmonies with skillful acoustic guitar and bass, embellished with harmonica or pennywhistle. Keith's rich baritone evokes a contemporary Appalachian Stan Rogers singing over some fine and fancy flatpicked guitar, while Joan's sweet alto draws from the dulcet tones of fair Ireland as much as their surroundings. While their own West Virginia-inspired originals are always a highlight, the couple easily traverses a wide range of traditional Celtic and American folk music, infusing it with their own special reverence for the music and a maturity that comes from over two decades of marriage, family and performing. From their remote mountaintop home overlooking northern West Virginia's rugged landscape, the Pitzers music is a natural extension of the joys and difficulties of Appalachian life.
In addition to their duo performances, Keith & Joan are half of the exciting quartet Wolf Creek Session, which explores the Celtic roots of traditional and contemporary Appalachian music.

Great Album
My surname being Pitzer and seeing that I am from West Virginia, I really hope I am related in some way. That would make me proud because Keith and Joan are now two of my favorite artists. Their harmonies and virtuoso instrumentation are excellent. I love the material on this album and plan to order more music from these two artists.

The CD was everything I expected and more! Heavenly music!
I fell in love with the music from the selections heard on CD Baby, then as Santa Claus, bought it myself, to open myself on Christmas Day. Its like a weekend at the Strawberry music festival in Yosemite and as personal as if being heard in your own livingroom. It brings back the memories of smaller concerts at McCabes, Sportsman's Lounge and those private places where a few dozen friends gather, to hear good music.
