AllMusic Review by

Hailing from Colorado, this duo finds a balance between folk simplicity and classical sonority. They approach songs from the British Isles, America and Catalonia with a chamber music sensibility, caressing them with serene arrangements that include cello, string bass and percussion. Rod Garnett's flutes and the guitars of Alex Komodore explore various musical cultures, from South American percussion support to traditional European pieces blended nicely with the original compositions found in the second half, where their elegant, often gentle music is most at home. "Redstone" evokes music of many times and places, happily remembered in today's musical arena.
