Brendan Hearn and Dakota Karper blend their talents on cello, violin, guitar, banjo and vocals to create a unique take on traditional and original folk music. Forming after a chance meeting at the Appalachian String Band Music Festival in 2018, they have spent time touring in New England, and the mid-atlantic region of the US. Uniquely, their passion for music comes not in the expected pursuit of a sound, but in the hungry search to experience moments of a ‘musical high’. It is that space where you are connected to all things around you and existing as a small piece of an expansive universe.
