Stand and SwayIf Dolly Parton and Aretha Franklin had a musical offspring, it would be Americana roots duo Stand and Sway. Steeped in soul, poetry, and harmony, Beth Wood and Ara Lee James blend together in a way that tends to break things: ceilings, hearts, ideas about genres. “Ara Lee is the best singer I’ve heard. Period. But what she does is more than that. To hear her live is gut-wrenching, heart soaring – it’s a spiritual awakening.” (Sue Svendsen, Peninsula Arts Center). Of Beth Wood, The Washington Post writes: “Wood is a musical triple-threat—a thoughtful songwriter and talented multi-instrumentalist with a supple, soulful voice.” The power of these two voices together is undeniable, and their music changes the weather. Prepare for foot-stomping, tear-inducing, mountain-sized joy.
