30-Day Song Challenge Day #24


Day 24: A song by a band you wish were still together

This is technically a duo, but Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer released three transcendent albums of folk/American music in the early 2000s before Carter died way too young in 2002.  Listen to their voices interweaving on “Tanglewood Tree.”
