Erin McGrane, Jeff Freling interview by Steve Walker
The term for a musical or artistic piece consisting of motifs or techniques borrowed from other sources is "pastiche." And what often results is a mix of theater, musicianship, and nostalgia, blended to a tee with the Kansas City duo Victor & Penny. The act consists of Erin McGrane and Jeff Freling who recently stopped by our studios to talk about how their varied careers in the arts led to this latest project. Performing in a minimalist fashion with a vintage guitar and ukulele, Victor & Penny specialize in jazzy pop standards from the 1920s and 1930s, as well as mixing in a few original tunes.
