Firehouse Sessions – Shovels and Rope

Play

Much is made of the on-stage chemistry between husband-and-wife Americana duo Shovels & Rope, who solder their harmonies with steady eye contact. During their visit to the WFHB studios, Cary Ann Hearst laughed it off, “We’ve been married for about ten thousand years!” Michael Trent backed her up, saying that the glances passed between them during sets are not about romance: “It’s communication. We’re talking about music.”

The Charleston-based band’s second album, 2012’s O’Be Joyful, made them stars on the country folk scene, with the single “Birmingham” picking up song of the year honors at the Americana Music Awards. Swimmin’ Time, released last summer, has resulted in even more national exposure, but the duo is sticking to their insulated DIY ethos. They talked with host Katie Moulton about collaboration, touring, and what they never leave home without (hint: it has paws).
