"With guitar, violin, banjo, harmonica, ukelele and dulcimer, these high-spirited independent artists present heartfelt original acoustic folk and blues." ~ Folk Times
Cosby Gibson and Tom Staudle live near the Adirondacks in upstate New York. As a duo, they have performed for over 600 events in the Northeast, Southern, and Mid-Atlantic States, including the Berkshires, Smokys, and Appalachian Mountain regions.
Together they perform acoustic, folk, Americana and blues-style original and cover songs with a variety of instruments. They are currently recording a song collection for an upcoming album release.
Cosby’s songs are said to be “as if composed from another time, simpler, more honest, more concise, without frivolous self-importance.”* Tom’s songs are known to “make you think,” and are written with a playful, outside the box creativity.
Tom and Cosby’s community involvement includes a non-profit music project, “The Flying Song Garden,” that brings song and festivity to communities in hardship, and two large open mics, “The Acoustic Coffee House,” each month, and “Party in the Park,” an annual event supported entirely by local businesses.
Together they enjoy skiiing, archery and film, and look forward to performing and touring this year.
