This late-'70s recording was the only duet album by musical partners Mary McCaslin and Jim Ringer. On many tracks, they're accompanied by a full band, including, among others, fiddler Jay Ungar. Tunes include 'Geronimo's Cadillac,' 'Hit the Road, Jack,' 'Rank Strangers' and others. Mary McCaslin and Jim Ringer were an unlikely combination in any number of ways. But somehow, through their years of touring and through this recording, they managed to set the standard for contemporary male/female folk duos. Together, their voices -- Mary's high and lilting, Jim's darker and rougher -- covered the wide terrain of American folk song in a thoroughly compelling way. The Bramble and the Rose stands as a fitting testament to their unique partnership.
