Alien Folklife - Joan Kosby And Paul Mercer Kosby and paul mercer. "The way Joan Kosby and paul mercer harmonise, given the specialness of mother, whose father had been a professional violinist, loved Mozart and Beethoven. http://www.freenetpages.co.uk/hp/trg/focsle/alien.htm
Extractions: "The way Joan Kosby and Paul Mercer harmonise, given the specialness of their vocal blend, you just know they are two individuals who are very much in tune with one another. And this unique chemistry is utilized to the nth degree on some stunning original folk material.... Here is a repertoire which can never become boring . . . " Dirty Linen Alien Folklife is the acoustic folk music duo of Canadian Paul Mercer and New York state native Joan Kosby. Their repertoire of original material combines contemporary and traditional folk music influences with a healthy dose of offbeat humor. They are equally at home with an evocative story song, an upbeat tune or a quirky humorous piece. Alien Folklife's original songs create vivid snapshots of everyday life, past and present. They celebrate love and friendship, and provide incisive - and sometimes hilarious - commentary on our times and ourselves. This contemporary feel is balanced by the duo's strong background in traditional music. Much of their songwriting has its roots in Paul Mercer's rich Newfoundland heritage. His song, "Johnny Burke," about a turn-of-the-century Newfoundland songwriter, has been recorded by the nationally-known trio of Priscilla Herdman, Anne Hills and Cindy Mangsen. "In the truest 'old songs' tradition, [Johnny Burke] sounds as if it could have been written 50 years ago or more."

The compositions feature electronically prepared antique violins, viola, and other "stringed" instruments such as tampura and autoharp. mp3s are now available from mp3.com.
