Songs we never recorded but probably should have—old-school country!

Homespun is Amy Gallatin & Roger Williams’ second, and long-awaited, duet project, the first since 2008’s Something ‘Bout You. The album began as a “shutdown project” during COVID, as Amy and Roger looked to continue their musical creativity in the absence of performing opportunities. The project became an occasion for the pair to record songs that, for one reason or another, had not made it onto their previous four albums together, and the relaxed recording schedule gave them the space to explore their musical roots over time. The result is a nod to their musical forebears (that’s Amy’s grandmother on the cover, circa 1920, and Roger’s mom, singer Gerry Lee, rear photo, 1938) and to classic country music, the way Roger grew up singing it with his mother. The tunes are enhanced by Amy and Roger's "go-to" stable of musicians: Canadian fiddler Ray Legere, Nashville's Jim Hoke on pedal steel, and New England brothers Bob and Dave Dick on banjo, bass, and guitar.
