"They Bring Folk to Classical,
and Class to Folk"

A husband and wife acoustic duo!  Their collaboration began in December 2000 when they were each recruited by a mutual friend to play in a Christmas Eve service. Following the event they agreed to explore how their divergent backgrounds would complement each other. Combined, Rusty’s experience with “music by ear” and Jan’s background as a classically trained flutist, they create a modern and innovative interpretation of many well known songs. They play a diverse assortment of styles including classical, originals, popular, and folk (just to name a few). 
Rusty and Jan are band members of Nytrous.  They are also members of the Pennsport String Band, Philadelphia Folksong Society, the Philadelphia Area Songwriters Alliance (PASA), and several other Philadelphia area organizations.
