Pretty Little Feet is an acoustic duo who play a wide-ranging repertoire of selections from the traditional canon and artists from the bygone days of radio up to the present, as well as their own originals. Between the two of them, Matt Novak and Allegra Ziffle have released six full-length albums and have been included on three compilation albums, two by major record labels Righteous Babe Records and Shut Eye Records.
Pretty Little Feet's debut release, Through Oak and Ash, is a collection of eighteen tracks, recorded to tape at Actual Air Studios, in the picturesque Cascade foothills just west of Mount Baker. Through Oak and Ash is a lush and lively album of two-part vocal harmony, supported with melodic combinations of mandolin, driving fiddle and guitar, and a few songs highlighted with frailing banjo and resonating dobro. Like the band's name, the songs and tunes represented on this recording are an undeniably welcome nod to tradition.
Pretty Little Feet's "Through Oak and Ash" is a collection that any enthusiast of traditional music should not be without. We strongly recommend this one.
