Nara has played in diverse bands and music traditions from early jazz and Hawaiian (Wikimen) to Russian Criminal music (Vulgargrad), traditional Italian folk (Santa Taranta) and Bluegrass (Brunswick Bluegrass Collective) and Cajun (Gob Iron Stringband), focusing here on his love of old time music and fiddle. Karina has spent many years absorbed by old time music playing banjo and guitar at sessions and festivals and dancing to Cajun and old time whenever she gets the chance. Both Nara and Karina share a true love of traditional American music, fiddle tunes, country ballads and rural music. The raw honest energy of old time tunes expresses the deep love of music that they share.
