Silly sisters were great, and the other aforementioned combinations, but sibling sisters singing together are special - Lal and Norma, Jane and Amanda Threlfall (who are our guests at Herga next Monday)and Rachel and Becky Unthank (who dances too!).

Port and Brandy sing Les Sullivan's THIEPVAL.

The single most beautiful song I've ever heard sung by two women was "DUMBARTON'S DRUMS." sung by Evelyn Beers and Gerry Armstrong. They sang it in my living room, accompanied by Fiddler on his psaltery, about 35 years ago and I can call it to mind as clearly as if it happened last week. The DT says the Beers recorded it with Jean Redpath.

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!

all pedants are right that i'm more interested in duets than duos, but duos are welcome as well (good to listen to how other singers blend with one another, even if there aren't any real gems on the album...)

Hi Damon
Thanks for your comments. Rowena and I still sing together,but now also sing in a three part harmony group calling ourselves Thorn and Roses. The guy who sings with us is Jinks Jenkin of Jinks Stack fame.
Who is this guy who taught us to sing?
We both sang individually, before we met at The Swan Folk club in Wadebridge MANY years ago!!

"O Light of the Morning" - for alto and low soprano, just as someone asked for. It's a very moving Christian song, arranged for harp and one or two voices, but would work fine on the guitar too. You can find it at www.valkyriepub.com.

Might we consider giving our guest, Emily, actual NAMES OF SONGS which are preferable for 2 female voices to harmonize?

Having said that, some of my old favs which are easy to harmonize ("gospel" 3rds most of the way) & enjoyed by most audiences, are often overlooked 'cause they are from the old tried & true department (most are Traditional or in the public domain):

Bluegrass--MIDNIGHT ON THE STORMY DEEP--a Traditional song which has long been thought of as a powerful duet (with lyrics adjusted to all be in the female 1st person)

also, DON'T THIS ROAD LOOK ROUGH AND ROCKY or ANGEL BAND--gospel 3rds most all the way through, good to learn harmony.

Hymns---IN THE GARDEN, Sweet Hour of Prayer, or WHISPERING HOPE

Gospel-----When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder, His Name Is Wonderful, KEEP ON THE SUNNY SIDE, & zillions of others

Spirituals----In The Upper Room With Jesus (the really old one Mahalia sang!), THERE IS A BALM IN GILEAD, STANDING IN THE NEED OF PRAYER, SINNER WILL BE RUNNIN' ON THAT GREAT DAY, & tons more.

From the old-time hit parade----Catch A Falling Star (and put it in your pocket), VAYA CON DIOS, DON'T LET THE STARS GET IN YOUR EYES (I liked Homer & Jethro's lyrics [DON'T LET THE STARS GET IN YOUR EYEBALLS] better, & you can find their lyrics in old mudcat threads!), Standin' On The Corner (watchin' all the girls/boys go by) True Love (I give to you & you give to me, Love forever true==Sung in the old movie by Bing & Grace Kelly! before it was resurrected a few years ago), He Loves and She Loves, & lots of other Broadway songs.

From the great composer of great operas:
Rossini--Duetto Buffo di du Gatti (comic duet of the cats-aka: sopranos) preferably sung in the original Italian lyrics: "Miau." This one may be my all-time fav duet to perform!

Apart from the cat duet "Meeeeaouwww" (Lesley Garrett managed to do both parts by some technical wizardry!) - Macalias (Gill Bowman and Karine Polwart) - they are both a duo AND do duets when they sing two songs against each other, which harmonise and work very well, e.g. "FINE FLOWERS IN THE VALLEY" and "BONNY AT MORN"

I've only heard Sylvia and Rowena on CD so far, but really would like to hear them properly.
I know the old boy who taught them to sing, and he's very, very proud of them...puffs his chest out every time they're mentioned!

The Fraser Sisters, Jo Freya and Fi Fraser. (Especially maybe when Ralph Jordan is playing for them.)
................

You do realise that, with a title like that, if this thread stretches out a little, we can expect to get companion threads "What's your favourite female diet?" and "What's your favourite female duvet?"

Actually, doesn't the term "duet" mean a piece for two sohers/musicians, while the term for two singers performing together is normally "duo". I get the impression that emily rain, in starting this thread, was in fact using it in the former sense.

I meant to say my favorite female duet was "GREY FUNNEL LINE" by Maddy Prior and June Tabor from the Silly Sisters album.

I also really like "WILLIE MOORE" by Joan Baez and Kate & Anna McGarrigle, but that would be a trio offering.
