“Thompson and Muldaur deliver… with both passion and pathos” – Alternate Root
The great country duets are an American treasure. Recorded by country music royalty in Nashville in the 1960s through the 1970s, these songs of euphoric, put-a-ring-on-it love, and private-tears heartbreak have a universal resonance that spans generations and cultures.
Take British singer-songwriter Teddy Thompson and New York folk-rock artist Jenni Muldaur. Both grew up decades and hundreds of miles from when and where these timeless songs were recorded. Yet the poetry and hard luck humor in the great country duets spoke to them. Now, Teddy and Jenni are sharing this music with new generations of fans with their achingly beautiful and faithfully recorded album, 2023’s Once More: Jenni Muldaur & Teddy Thompson Sing The Great Country Duets.
Once More: Jenni Muldaur & Teddy Thompson Sing The Great Country Duets is a twelve-song collection of teardrop ballads and reflective songs previously recorded by George Jones and Tammy Wynette; Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn; and Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton. Jenny and Teddy exude their easy charm with their honeyed vocals and sumptuous harmonies. The duo is deftly supported by elegantly essential traditional country accompaniment, featuring lonesome pedal steel, chicken-pickin’ electric guitars, and a nuanced but unhurried rhythm section.
Recommended for Fans of Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette, Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn
