"Here's a nice surprise to kick off the summer. Jeannie is of course from the Burns Sisters and Andrew is the guitarist extrordinaire who is one of the most sought after session players in the country, so there's nothing left but to enjoy this new duet album.
It's an album's worth of edgy folk with some of the finest singing and picking we've heard in a long time. Fats Kaplan rejoins his old band mate from the Tom Russell days and they make magic once again. The album features nine new original songs and closes with a stunning cover of George Harrison's "Beware Of Darkness." - Sound Magazine"
"Hardin Burns is Andrew Hardin, best known for his longtime collaboration with singer-songwriter Tom Russell, and Jeannie Burns of the Ithaca-based trio the Burns Sisters. Showcasing Jeannie's gorgeous voice and Andrew's eloquent guitar playing, the duo mines a bluesy folk-rock vein of haunting originals and the occasional cover, like the stirring version of George Harrison's "Beware of Darkness" on their debut album, Lounge." Freight & Salvage
produced by Andrew Hardin at George Bradfute's
Tone Chaparral Studio in Nashville.
