Dan Duggan and Peggy Lynn are celebrating ten years of marriage and fifteen years of performing together. Peggy’s talent for moving lyrics and Dan’s knack for unique, tasteful arrangements make this recording a fitting culmination of their composing and performing experience. Dan and Peggy combine original and traditional songs and tunes with masterful harmonies and inventive arrangements. The couple’s gift of insight is matched with dynamic songwriting and instrumental virtuosity.

Peggy Lynn, referred to by poet Maurice Kenny as “The Voice of the Mountains,” is recognized for her soulful songwriting and extraordinary vocal versatility. She is known for ballads of strong women, children’s songs about nature, and bluesy songs of life and love.

Dan Duggan is known nationally for his wizardry on hammered dulcimer and flat-picking guitar. He is a true multi-instrumentalist, equally at home on guitar, slide guitar, piano, banjo and his signature hammered dulcimer.
