The Atomic Duo..
Some Flatt, a little Scruggs, and a whole lot of Gil Scott-Heron. Just when you’re comfortable thinking these guys are a slightly irreverent novelty, Silas Lowe and Mark Rubin drop the Smothers Brothers routine and floor you with a song like “Texas City” and stunt picking as reckless as a game of chicken.

The Atomic Duo are two men focused on a return to and a re-examination of the American Folk Song. These are not the warm and fuzzy songs you might imagine. These are political songs that push your nose right into the dark and dysfunctional aspects of our society that most of us just look away from until it come knocking at our door.
In these times of the Great Recession, home foreclosures, job losses, oil spills and coal mine disasters, the Atomic Duo is literally on the road again to give voice to a growing group of Americans who feel repressed, disenfranchised and betrayed by the country they have always trusted and loved.
