Welcome to the world of KIM & SHARON, Vermont's "Appalachian Americana" duo! Creative Spirit Award winners for songwriting, this accidental collaboration (see biography) has been in demand for festivals, benefit events, private events, and great club gigs in New England, NYC, all the way down south to New Orleans. Kim's transcendent vocals and guitar stylings, with Sharon's Weber mandolin; combined with their lyrics about farming, losing loved ones, letting go by hanging on, not being afraid of dying, Massey Ferguson tractors, Jesus and firecrackers....has made them one of the most unique, talked about bands in the Americana landscape......

Fall Update....... 

We sure lucked out this year.....we met Grammy Award winning music producer, Wayne Jobson at New Orleans Jazz Festival, who is now producing our latest EP! He is working with us at Spirithouse Studio in Northampton, MA, with the great Danny Bernini as engineer. We've had amazing guest stars such as Syd Straw, Rocky Roberts, Jim Armenti, Ray Mason, and Ray Saunders contributing their talents. In addition to this, we were once again honored to open for Sonny Landreth and Cindy Cashdollar at their Vermont show last week--now THAT is some talent between those two!! We hope to see more of our southern fans, as well as our northern friends, this year, as we now live in New Orleans as well as Vermont! Stay tuned for all the good stuff coming ....we will keep you posted!!!

Happy 2016! 

We wish all of our friends and fans a wonderful 2016, with lots of good music! This is the year we will finally officially be releasing our amazing CD--yes, it is high time this happened! At every gig, our fans ask us for CDs, and we have been giving out home pressed copies. Stay tuned for news of the release date! Sadly, the new year will not include the assistance of our "band photographer and PR agent" David Buzzell, my stepfather, who passed away in December. We will keep his memory alive through our music. We will keep you updated on all upcoming gigs, as we have decided it is time to get back on the road!

Summer update! 

It appears that summer is finally here, and we are happy to partake of the beautiful VT weather by playing at various outdoor markets this year! We opened the season with a great gig in June at the Bellows Falls Farmers Market, where Kim's voice could be heard all the way up Main Street. Someone said "Who is that singing, is it Merle Haggard?" So, of course, we felt compelled to sing a few of our favorite Merle tunes! We are in the process of lining up quite a few more outdoor gigs, and we will keep you posted as we do. Thanks for visiting our web site and we look forward to seeing you!

What's coming in 2015...... 

Merry 2015! We really did not disappear for the last half of 2014; we were tending to family responsibilities, working hard in our day jobs, and finishing up our first CD. We are psyched about how great the CD is--if any musician out there is trying to decide which studio to use for recording, look no further than Spirithouse Studio in Northampton, where Danny Bernini is the best sound engineer on the planet! We've posted the songs on this website; please do check them out!! We were so fortunate to have amazing guest stars; the Lonesome Brothers' Jim Armenti and Ray Mason, Big Head Todd and the Monsters' Brian Nevin, the one and only Mike Slahetka, the esteemed Rocky Roberts, local icon Ray Saunders, and he-who-has-kept-his-talent-hidden for years, Mark Levenson!

So....to ring in the New Year, we found out that we were chosen to perform again at the annual Singer Songwriter Cape May Conference in NJ, in March. This will be our fourth year that we've been selected and we are looking forward to it! We might even get modern, and have our performance videotaped and youtubed!

We plan to get back out on the road in 2015, with some cool gigs and festivals again, and we sure hope to see you all out there!! Thanks for being such great fans!
