Reilly & Maloney – this Saturday at the Community Theatre!
I’ve been listening to these guys since the early eighties, and their version of The Bramble & The Rose is a staple in my set when I sing….it’s awesome they’re coming to visit the island! I hope you get a chance to see their show this Saturday – here’s more from Jan Bollwinkel-Smith:
Ginny Reilly and David Maloney started making folk music together in 1970 after the two solo singers met at San Francisco’s Drinking Gourd club on Union Street. More than 40 years later, Reilly & Maloney share those folk sounds with us on the Whittier stage THIS Saturday, July 28 at 7:30 p.m..
In those early years, the two friends became known as simply “Ginny and David” as they toured clubs in the Bay Area, around Seattle and in between, both playing the guitar and performing their original songs as well as paying tribute to folk favorites. They played more than 3000 shows together, including sharing the stage with such artists as Judy Collins, Tom Paxton and Greg Brown.
After a ten-year hiatus that began in 1990 as they pursued solo careers and attended to family, the duo reunited. The release of their 2004 CD, Together Again, prompted a review from Tom Nelligan of Dirty Linen: “Reilly still has one of the sweetest voices in folk music, an ethereal soprano that dances lightly around Maloney’s grittier baritone, and the contrast in their voices and their unique sense of harmony makes for some wonderful duets.”
Today, the two continue to sing both together and in solo concerts. For more information on the artists, check them out at www.reillyandmaloney.com
