Traditional Duets

INTRO – If you like your country or acoustic music slick and highly produced, don’t buy the following CD by Raleigh’s Lynda Dawson and Greenville’s Pattie Hopkins. One guitar, one fiddle, two voices … that’s it … and the CD’s title tells you everything you need to know about the music inside. George Olsen talked with Lynda & Pattie and has this.

This week on the Down East Journal, we talk about how upgrading highway 70 could bring economic prosperity to eastern North Carolina.  And, everything you need to know about the new CD “Traditional Duets” by Raleigh’s Lynda Dawson and Greenville’s Pattie Hopkins can be found in its title.  Hear the Down East Journal, Friday at noon on all of the PRE stations, and Saturday at noon on News and Ideas.
