3 Mile Stone -This trio of musicians has at long last gelled into an ‘item’ after many, many years of loving to play together. Erin & Marla’s bold styles are well matched to each other and lovingly prodded and propelled by Richard’s brilliant back-up. The core of their sound is the full string thing -- fiddle, mandolin and guitar playing Irish dance music - jigs & reels. But don’t worry, there’s relief - Erin and Marla sing as well. Erin is likely to grace and surprise you with lovely a capella songs from her collection. Marla is more likely to accompany her singing with mandola and Richard’s lovely guitar playing. Toss in their “you can’t stop us” instruments -- button accordion and banjo -- and you have it all...and then some!
