Thread Name: What's your favorite female duet?
Subject: RE: What's your favorite female duet?
Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard do wonderful old-time and bluegrass music-- I think they are particularly interesting for the way they put songs together as a duo.

If you are interested in old-time country music, a lot of original The Carter Family recordings featured Maybelle and Sara Carter doing some great duet singing. (A.P. was there, but he would sort of come in and then leave again, so in a lot of ways I would say their sound featured duet singing more than trio singing)

Po' Girl is a duo from British Columbia who are making waves these days. I haven't heard much of them, but what I did hear I thought was great.
