Bettman and Halpin CD Release: 1000 Miles
March 22nd join Americana-Folk Duo Bettman & Halpin in celebrating the release of their 6th CD “1000 Miles”.
1000 Miles careens down a dirt road, kicking up dusty folk and bluegrass traditions while whipping in original arrangements of roots and Americana. After all those miles, it’s clear that Bettman & Halpin have found a new stride. It’s got a few barn-burnin’ bangers, but it’s well balanced with some achingly honest ballads. Thankfully, they’ve kept their heartfelt storytelling and lyrics at the center of everything – and that’s no easy feat when the strings fly as fast as these two can send them.
Bettman & Halpin play original Folk/Americana. Their concerts combine high-energy upbeat bluegrass/roots inspired compositions, beautiful ballads with soaring vocals and heartfelt lyrics, and groovy feel-good songs that audiences will be singing in their heads for weeks thereafter. Interspersed between these songs and instrumentals, they tell stories. They have become as known for their storytelling and playful banter as well as for their hooky whole-hearted songwriting and instrumental wizardry. They have been touring nationally together since 2008.
They will be joined by Ryan Ellwood on Drums, and Elijah Goldman on Bass
