MUSIC: Vocal duo Margo Murph, John Roberts at Honey Moon

Margo Murphy and John Roberts’ vocal blend brings tenderness and heartache to every song. With tasteful acoustic guitar work and heartfelt harmony, they perform vintage country, early bluegrass. and a sprinkle of pop from when pop was top.

They will perform at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, March 7, at Honey Moon Mead & Cider, 1053 N. State St. (behind Pepper Sisters).

Raised on different shores of Puget Sound, Murphy and Roberts each fostered a love for duet harmony singing.

Murphy, well-versed in both country and jazz, has serenaded couples on Seattle dance floors and released two CDs, accompanied by Northwest jazz luminaries.

Roberts, a longtime member of the band Nooksack Valley Boys, has spent much of his life working on fishing boats, which seems to have put a salty soulfulness into his voice.

When their musical paths converged at a festival in the Northwest woods, the result was magic.
