I’ve been wanting to talk about Tina and Her Pony for a while – and today – when I’m finally home, fresh off of tour and ready to restart ye olde Queer Cuts – what do I see but a new and awesome video from this classic duo that somehow make old timey folk country feel 100% fresh and new!
Check out this super cool stop animation video for “Good Man”. Illustrations by Rosy Kirby (Indian Summer Press), video production by Scott McKibben.
Tina & Her Pony met in Asheville, N.C. in 2009. Tina Collins (tenor banjo, tenor ukulele, guitar, vocals) and Quetzal Jordan (cello, guitar, vocals) spent two years holed up in the high desert mountain town of Taos, New Mexico, making music and friends, and becoming one of the iconic artist colony’s most beloved performing acts. Collins and Jordan’s songwriting incorporates complexities in harmony and arrangement that queer the american folk tradition. Their unique sound draws inspiration from artists such as Nickel Creek, Sarah Jarosz, Gillian Welch and Crooked Still.
