The husband and wife duo of Curtis Teague and Loretta Simonet, from Minneapolis are “old school” folkies. They deliver finely honed vocal harmonies and have abundant talent on an array of stringed instruments (mandocello, mandolin, Celtic harp, guitar, uke, and banjo). Their traditional roots are deep, based on the English folk form, though much of their material is original and contemporary. They have been singing and playing together ever since a chance meeting on a Santa Cruz beach in 1977, where Loretta was practicing guitar for a variety show. They have 9 CD’s, have shared the stage with many folk luminaries over the years, and have been voted “Best Acoustic Performers in The Twin Cities” in the past. They used to play regularly in the Bay Area and Santa Cruz areas, and resumed doing this a couple of years ago . They were also one of the first acts to play for Fiddling Cricket some 20 years ago.
