One year after the release of 'Weight of the World', American folk and bluegrass duo 10 String Symphony is touring Australia and will stop at Wauchope Arts following performances at the Patchewollock, Dorrigo and Froggy Mountain festivals.
Five-string fiddle players Rachel Baiman and Christian Sedelmyer formed 10 String Symphony in 2012, and won many Australian fans at Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass and JamGrass Festivals that year.
Rachel, a former Illinois state fiddle champion, has appeared with Sheryl Crow and Brandi Carlile, and Christian has appeared alongside Emmylou Harris, Buddy Miller and Alison Brown.
Though they play acoustic music, their rock influence is apparent in their arrangements as they move listeners through an emotional journey.
Despite the use of clawhammer banjo and percussion, their mission statement remains clear – two voices, two fiddles, epic music.
