Charlie King and Karen Brandow are musical storytellers and political satirists.  Their repertoire covers a century and a half and four continents.  They perform with the sweet and precise harmonies of life partners.  They sing and write passionately about the extraordinary lives of ordinary people.  “Two voices that complement each other beautifully & instrumentation that is spare, acoustic & just right,” according to Victory Music Review.
Their central vision as entertainers is to leave audiences with a sense of optimism and possibility about the future.  “We try to cover a broad emotional landscape in our concerts.  The stories we collect and the songs we write take the listener on a journey of humor, heartache and hope.  What we most value in a song is the way it helps us see an old reality in a totally new light.”
