Gwen Swick who recorded may albums with the group Tammarack replaced Colleen Peterson in Quartette. Sylvia Tysons's most recent album is the 2000 release "River Road and Other Stories" (Quartette 23339-4004) which is mostly new takes on songs she has written over her career. Could be hard to find outside of Canada. Her son, Clay Tyson (yes, the one and only Mr. Spoons, which he likely hates to be reminded of), has a solo album of his own that I think also came out last year.

Joe you are right about Russell & Ian sounding alike. On the Nanci Griffith album, Tyson sings a Russell song with Nanci and Russell sings a Tyson song with her. Tyson and Russell have also collaborated on writing a number of songs "The Banks of the Musselshell", "Claude Dallas" and "Navajo Rug" come to mind and I'm sure there are more.
