Miriam Sonstenes and Jeff Dill have been playing music together for over a decade. Using the fiddle and guitar as their foundation and leaping off point, these two musicians serve up old country songs, Texas fiddle tunes, old time square dance music and original songs with grace and traditional style.

Their musical travels have taken them to Ireland, North Carolina, Louisiana, and across Canada on VIA Rail’s Artists on Board Program. Based in Victoria, BC, the duo has been performing on Vancouver Island and around the west coast, and recently opened for John Reischman and The Jaybirds’ CD release and Christmas benefit concert in Victoria BC. As well as passionately studying and performing the music they both love, Miriam gigs regularly with The Unfaithful Servants, and is a founding member of the award winning roots trio The Sweet Lowdown. Jeff is a member of Riverside Bluegrass Band and both are founding members of Victoria bluegrass band Flash In The Pan.

With a tight vocal blend on classic duets of love, heartache and longing, and compelling fiddle tunes from many traditions, this duo brings a warm and inviting sound, infused with the pure joy of making music.
