ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"I'll chase you like a butterfly - sweet shadow of mine..."

Two Hearts. Two Minds.
Two Roads Home.

Bryan Williston and Abby Zotz are Two Roads Home, a guitar and voice - based folk duo that has been performing together for over twenty years. Their music can be characterized as warm, sophisticated folk pop with Celtic roots, but not exclusively committed to the traditional. Fusing elements of traditional folk with bluegrass, country, Appalachian and popular music, the sound of Two Roads Home reflects the comfort and history they share.

Bryan and Abby began performing together in 1978 in their hometown of Whitby Ontario. Over the years, life separated the pair although they touched base occasionally to share a tune or two. Education and careers took them on different paths: Abby worked as an actor on stage and in film and television, and founded the classical renaissance vocal trio, The MadriGALS; Bryan worked in children's music, ran a song circle with the Vital Spark Folk Club, and played in his pub act Battered and Fried. Their roads converged again when the pair hooked up (musically) in 2001.

Since that time, TRH has recorded two CDs and toured extensively, winning fans with their infectious energy and comfortable and often hilarious repartee. They have opened for such notable artists as The Whitely Brothers, Connie Kaldor, Don Ross, Nancy White and James Keelaghan, and have shared the stage with the likes of Katherine Wheatley, Jory Nash, Suzie Vinnick, Aengus Finnan, Michael Pickett, David Newland, and The Als. Festivals and folk venues include the inaugural BarrieFolk Roots Music Festival, Toronto’s Junction Arts Festival, The Vital Spark Folk Society and Toronto’s Music on the Hill Series. Their first recording, "Dovetailing", released in 2003, celebrated TRH’s performing heritage with a collection of energized and updated traditional folk tunes and stellar covers. “Dovetailing was a springboard for us,” says Bryan. “Recording our own songs was the next logical step. As we toured and toiled, songs had a way of organically evolving.” In the spring of 2008 the duo releases their second CD, "Sweet Shadows", a collection of nine original and four traditional songs produced by Canadian folk icon James Gordon.

Two Roads Home celebrates the diverse paths and reunites the worlds of two old friends. Concert hall performer meets street busker; pub rocker meets renaissance siren. Life has taken them in divergent directions; the music brings them home.
