We are an indie-folk duo featuring original music played with a range of acoustic and stringed instruments. When we met, we were both solo musicians with our own material and experience. As soon as we began playing together we fused our past creative works and began new ones, forming what is now the sound of Old Grove.
When it comes to instruments, we can't help ourselves - we love them all, so we rarely travel light. Maggie holds down the lead vocals and plays ukulele, flute, guitar, harmonica, and djembe. Jimmy plays lead guitar, banjo, djembe, mandolin, harmonica, and periodically jumps in on the vocals.
At times, music hits us and songs seem to write themselves. And occasionally, they must be shaped with artistry and effort, wrought into existence. We thoroughly enjoy this process of creative songwriting; our love of music is fueled by the joy we get from sharing it with others. [+]
