In Their Words:Get Up and Do Right is our 45th recording and our first recording that is primarily of duets. We love the intimacy of a duet — which is the primary configuration we perform in. We love the combination of five-string and cello banjo, cello banjo and ukulele, two guitars, five-string banjo and ukulele, and vocal harmonies. Alice Gerrard’s song, ‘Get Up and Do Right,’ is a perfect anthem for the social justice activism that we are engaged in right now. Pete Seeger’s inspiration shows up in ‘Had I A Golden Thread’ and “Well May the World Go,’ along with the ‘Letter to Pete’s Banjo’ that I recite during that track. And, in these crazy times, playing music and making art to share is a big part of getting up and doing right. For us, this is the right album at the right time.” — Cathy Fink
