The Ackley Duo

Thursday, November 5, 7:30 PM

Concert - Ackley Duo

Alison Ackley and Taylor Ackley are partners in life and in music. They have been performing together since 2015 when they founded the Deep Roots Ensemble. Taylor’s background in traditional American music and Alison’s extensive experience as a classical chamber musician come together to form the foundation of all the music they make together. The rich sound of their two-part harmony singing brings songs old and new to life in a way that feels both timeless and remarkable. In their five years of collaborating they have performed in festivals, concerts and recitals across the United States.

The Deep Roots Ensemble’s first album Songs from the Bitterroot was released in 2018 by 4Tay records and the next Hard Tellin’ is now available. While Taylor and Alison primarily perform with the Deep Roots Ensemble, their duo concerts always bring a special, intimate character to their well-loved style.
