The Fox and the Fiddle

fox-fiddle.jpgThis duo, which made its market debut last year, delivers country music with hints of rock, pop and folk, creating a unique blend that appeals to any taste. The Fox is Austin Scott Thorpe, who has been writing and performing music for more than 15 years from Nashville to New Hudson, MI, in big bands and solo gigs. The fiddle is Emily Joy Howard, who met Scott in 2019. They decided to combine their talents and began playing in various Southeast Michigan venues. “We love playing outside in the spring, summers and falls of Michigan,” says Emily.

Bob Monteleone

Bob-Coltrane.jpgBob Monteleone has been a mainstay on the Detroit music scene for decades, first with the grounding-breaking reggae band Black Market and later with the '90s reformation of The Look. He formed the recording act Luck & Trouble in the early 2000s with Replacements' guitarist Brian Blush and also founded the indie record label Hanzie Records around that time. He currently performs regularly with the trio Acoustic Madness and with top Midwest Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young tribute band Carry On, as well as the blues rockin' Stumbling Mice. He also plays in an acoustic duo with his wife, April Monteleone, a.k.a. Bob & April.
