One day, at an airport, Holly & Ken met totally by chance. Four years later, she sent him a copy of Maps and Lists. Ken wrote to her and was like, “Your record’s great! What’s next?” Holly was like, “Lots of stuff!’ They played some shows together and then, almost as a dare, he said to her, “Let’s make a country record in France!”.
Holly & Ken, The Record, is an indie country opera, a concept album, an homage to Willie Nelson’s 1975 classic record, Red Headed Stranger.
They will play this material in dit’ e nat’ on Wednesday (January 20th) at 9PM.
