The Lark and the Loon are a husband and wife songwriting duo. Having met as songwriters in the local music scene of Minneapolis, Minnesota the two quickly began collaborating and were just as quickly married.
After a move to the Windy City of Chicago they began dreaming of a life with more travel, less bustle, and more solitude. They decided to move to the Ozark mountains in northwest Arkansas and began refining their music style in the tranquility of the hillside. Roots music by simple definition their writing and song choices traverse the Americana idea in what they call an exploration of the etymology of American music. Sea shanties, Irish dance tunes, Delta and Piedmont blues, jazz, and country all weave together under the calm direction of their showmanship and love of wordplay.
Their debut album “Songbirds and Fog” was one of the highest charted self-released albums on the Folk DJ charts the month of its release and has been gaining steady fanfare from the listeners reached by this 74 minute 19 track catalog of an album.
Tailored to their environment they deliver performances full of humor, insight, and history. Having several coast-to-coast tours under their belt the two enjoy the road. When at home they write, work the rocky soil, and hike the natural beauty of the area soaking in the peace and quiet before their next venture.
