Music: Solos, Duos, and Trios
trio Zoe Speaks consists of Mitch Barrett, Carla Gover and Owen
Reynolds, who draw on their deep roots in the region to put their own spin on
everything from traditional ballads to finely-crafted, award-winning originals.
A smooth, mellow instrumental mix lays the background for the close vocal
harmonies that are a defining feature of their sound. They accompany
themselves on guitar, claw hammer banjo, upright bass and sometimes dulcimers
and clogging feet. Zoe Speaks has performed at the likes of Merlefest, The
Kennedy Center, The Kerrvillle Folk Festival and The Copenhagen Blues
Festival. They play clawhammer banjo, fiddle and lap dulcimer along with
guitar and upright bass and their sets are sometimes interspersed with
dulcimers and clogging feet.
