Mac and Jenny Traynham have been sharing a love for duet singing for over 30 years. When they discovered early country, old time duet and gospel recordings they immediately knew they wanted to learn the “sound” of this pure and heart driven singing.
Using guitars, harmonica, banjo and fiddle to back themselves up, they have been playing and singing a repertoire of the old popular to obscure songs. They’ve performed across the United States and have taught duet singing at a number of music camps.
They love to share their knowledge and experience with others with the hope that more people will experience the joy of this music.
