Both Andy Stack and Tania Elizabeth have collaborated with other musicians throughout their musical careers.
Andy began formally touring with a band when he was just age 15, and has since then toured with Suzanne Vega, Jonah Smith and the NY Ska Jazz Ensemble. Writing and recording his own songs gave Andy the opportunity to open for bands such as Los Lobos, Madeleine Peyroux, Guy Davis, Dar Williams and Martin Sexton. Andy has also collaborated with his sister Melissa Ahern in a duo She and the Sun.
Tania Elizabeth is a multi-instrumentalist, with fiddle as her primary instrument. Like Andy, at age 15 she started formally touring and recorded her first album. She’s the co-founder of the Canadian-based band The Duhks who recently finished recording a new album, soon to be released. Tania’s versatility makes her a huge asset as an accompanist and she’s traveled with musicians such as Rachael Yamagata and Mary Gauthier.
Andy and Tania met in a prohibition-era blues club in the middle of New York City. They were both there to support a mutual friend’s performance and formed an instant connection that started not just a musical collaboration…they were married at city hall in NYC in the spring of 2013.
Tim and I went to the Tin Angel in Philadelphia to see Tania and Andy perform with Adrien Reju. Their abilities to accompany with sensitivity and perfection enhanced Reju’s performance. We are honored to have The Stacks present a house concert on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 at Chestnut House Concerts. If you like fiddle tunes, electric guitar, strong vocals with gentle harmonies, covers with a twist, and original songwriting – save your seat now by emailing Tim at firstname.lastname@example.org.
