Bethany & Rufus' Live Performance of 'Sail Away Ladies' (MP3)

"In this live performance of 'Sail Away Ladies', Bethany & Rufus are clearly on top of their game. Bethany's haunting vocals are top-notch here and Rufus's clever cello playing is wonderfully complemented by percussionist Bonga Jean Baptiste and Mady Kouyate playing the kora. This is roots music at its finest." - Eric Hartline, MusicDish

Bethany & Rufus - Sail Away Ladies - "Spirit of Woodstock"

"Stunning." (Goldmine Magazine) "Remarkable." (Jazz Times) "The real deal." (Allmusic). "Extraordinary... Brilliant" (All About Jazz)

BETHANY & RUFUS are all these things... Called "a splash of sunlight between the grey cracks of mediated culture" by the UK Guardian, the cello and voice duo have kept their production spare and focused on the depth of soul in the roots music they inhabit like few others. In their hands, old aching mountain songs, gospel cries of redemption and reckoning, and the deep groove chugging of a freight train holler come alive again with an urgency and energy that have electrified audiences all over the world.
