The extraordinary Intimacy Of The Duo Tall Heights Live Under The Stars At Philly Folk

Tall Heights from Boston make their World Cafe debut with a set from The Philadelphia Folk Festival. The duo of Tim Harrington on guitar and vocals and Paul Wright on cello and vocals began playing on the street in Boston where they stopped people with their gorgeous harmionies and the unique interplay of cello and guitar. Even though the band is now a four piece the intimacy remains. They have an EP called Holding On, Holding Out coming in October and they will showcase those tunes.
