If there was ever a dynamic duo in the performing singer-songwriter world, these two seasoned performers and musicians could most certainly fit the bill. The combination of Jill Manning’s rough and ready, lovely and literate voice backed by the superb and sublime, intense and intentional guitar playing of Jaigh Lowder is a delight to hear, see and experience in any way possible. On Oct. 21, they released their first collaborative record, Next Time Around, a collection of 11 self-penned tunes, recorded by Lowder and performed as a duo. They were chosen from many, as one of the few artists featured as Official Showcase performers at FARM, the annual Midwest region gathering of the Folk Alliance International held in St. Louis in 2013. They characterize their performances as “fun and entertaining” and claim the “goal of the artist is to connect, inspire and entertain.” Anyone who has experienced these two incredible, and very real musicians during a performance, know they certainly achieve those qualifications, often moving above and beyond, to flashes of transcendence and illumination.
