Individually well-known and loved for their decades of music making, Cindy and Grey have been performing together since 2004. Cindy is a superb singer, guitarist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. Grey is one of America’s finest players of the Irish flute and tin whistle, as well as an accomplished singer and concertina, fiddle, piano and harmonium player. As composers each has contributed to the tapestry of contemporary folk and world music as it flourishes in America today. Their songs and tunes are woven with vibrant color and rich texture.

Scott Alarik of The Boston Globe calls Cindy “…one of folk music’s most respected songwriters… provocative, heartwise, and original …a brilliant guitarist… “. Mike Joyce of The Washington Post calls Grey “… a gifted multi-instrumentalist who consistently demonstrates his melodic finesse,” while The New Mexico Daily describes his playing as “positively spellbinding”.

The duo’s repertoire includes Cindy’s sparkling original songs, distinctive settings of traditional Irish music, Scandinavian fiddle duets, old-time fiddle and guitar tunes from southern Indiana, and new music that Cindy and Grey are inventing together. There is plenty of variety and breadth of musical territory here, all deeply rooted in folk traditions, and interwoven with the renaissance and baroque counterpoint in which both Cindy and Grey, coincidentally, were immersed while growing up. Included are vocal duets, guitar, Irish flute, Irish alto flute, tin whistle, concertina, harmonium, and duet fiddling, and plenty of stories that put the music into a personal context.


"Courage" - Cindy Kallet & Grey Larsen

In 2007, they released their widely-praised first duo recording, Cross the Water. In 2010, they produced a single, and YouTube videoBack When We Were All Machines, a playful, humorous look at the serious subject of our modern paradox of human connection and disconnection. Their new CD, Welcome Day, was released in September, 2015.

Their music is remarkable for its vibrant colors and intricate textures, rewarding the listener with a level of nuance and craftsmanship often compared to that of fine chamber music. You may listen to them and view videos for free.

Cindy Kallet & Grey Larsen - "If You Say Yes"

Nan Collie wrote "Cindy Kallet and Grey Larsen are exquisite musicians and gentle souls, both of which make for a wonderful evening of music. The gifts of their writing, arranging, and exceptional instrumental talents combine with a genuine warmth and charm that leaves an audience walking away smiling, uplifted, and humming a tune."
