Album Notes
Mich Sampson is a lively folk-acoustic performer from London's East End, wooing her audience with warm vocals and a deft touch on the piano. Guest of honour at Georgia's GAFilk music convention in 2004 and at the British Filk Convention in 2006, her unique style is best described as Tori Amos meets Joni Mitchell with a splash of spirituality.

Marilisa Valtazanou was born in Iowa, raised in Greece and now lives in London; she celebrates her multinational background by having a song in an obscure language for every occasion. She will attempt to play any instrument that is foolishly left in her path, and she occasionally writes songs, but mainly she sings in a vivid, memorable alto that demands attention.

Together they form Playing Rapunzel, an energetic duo who share, in rich, powerful harmony, songs of story and myth. They have been shortlisted for nine Pegasus filk awards, and Abseiling for Beginners is their first CD.

Such beautiful voices!
An album for those who want strong, interesting lyrics interpreted with beautiful female harmonies and their own strong instrumental accompaniments.
