"Sara Grey and her son, Kieron Means, play American music, as distinct from Americana -theirs is the real deal. Old-time ballads, cowboy songs and Primitive Methodist hymns are all grist to their individual mill. Sara's unique frailing banjo style and Kieron's blues-inflected guitar are in perfect harmony and this, instinctive, family symbiosis is what sets them apart. Passionate and heartfelt vocals are the icing on the cake Sara spent many years in the Highlands as well as in her native Appalachia collecting songs in both traditions and is an authority on the song-lines that connect the old world and the new.
An evening in their company is an evening with the heart, soul and history of folk roots music.
