IN SOUND AN ECHO, RACHAEL KILGOUR & SARA PAJUNEN
bridge their distinct yet complementary musical histories within traditional music from their European heritages. Kilgour is an award-winning songwriter whose sincere and lyric-driven work ('a heartfelt slice of indie folk' [Billboard]) has been heard at Lincoln Center and The Sundance Film Festival. A classically-trained violinist studying contemporary improvisation at New England Conservatory, Pajunen is a sound artist, composer and an acclaimed progressive practitioner of Nordic folk music with "extra elusive appeal..." (fRoots).
Pajunen's sonic-focused aesthetic and Kilgour's fluency in storyline combine artfully to highlight their shared sensitivity in powerful, inventive arrangements.
