Sparky And The Ancient Mariner
Acoustic male/female duo specializing in carefully crafted and unique harmonies. Based in North Orange County/Long Beach area in Southern California, but can serve Los Angeles and San Diego and other areas depending on day/time/price. Very receptive to out of town/state opportunities. Style is predominantly Americana, some rooted country, “bluesy-grass”, some pop, some Beatles, some 20’s & 30’s-ish songs, some traditional country, and a variety of contemporary songs adapted to unique signature style. Can accommodate special requests with advance notice. We do unique versions of known and lesser-known covers and have several original pieces that range in style and tempo. Instruments include acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin, but primarily acoustic guitar. Closest similar duo in style would be The Civil Wars or Kasey Chambers/Shane Nicholson. Think of us as a duo who brings a unique flair in harmony to a wide variety of music, and often with a bit of a throwback to the 20's and 30's flavor. Duo has been working and performing together since early 2014, and have 3+ hours of prepared music. Have excellent small PA system when needed. Have played many venues in Orange County and Long Beach areas, and have recorded a full CD, which can be found on iTunes, Amazon & Spotify under Sparky & The Ancient Mariner or Sparky And The Ancient Mariner.
