18 years ago, they played together in the band The Be Good Tanyas, and now they have reunited as a duo. Jolie Holland and Samantha Parton made the album Wildflower Blues in 2017 on their own label. The record earned an excellent critical reception, drawing attention to the duo’s fine vocal harmonies and their take on American roots music. The two musicians tell on their website that they were inspired while writing the songs for this album by Bob Dylan’s Nashville Skyline from 1969. The Be Good Tanyas formed in 1999 in Vancouver, Canada, where Samantha Parton is from. Jolie Holland, who is from Texas, was part of the group for a while but left to make her way as a soloist based in San Francisco. The Be Good Tanyas were very popular on the alternative country scene, and Jolie Holland has released seven albums and toured constantly since 2002. This is their only Danish festival concert in 2018.
