Thread Name: What's your favorite female duet?
Subject: RE: What's your favorite female duet?
The Kossoy Sisters, Ellen and Irene. They appeared at the very first Newport Folk Festival in 1959. And their one and only LP from that era, Bowling Green, became a classic example of just how well urban folkies could do old-time Southern country music. Then they disappeared for more than 40 years, finally being rediscovered when one song from that old LP, I'LL FLY AWAY, appeared in the movie O Brother! Where Art Thou? Now in their mid-sixties, Ellen and Irene suddenly have a whole new career!
