Chrissie has been playing guitar since 1995. She started playing folk and rock tunes in college. Writing songs seemed like a natural extension to the poetry she had always been creating. Over the years she became interested in a variety of styles and also picked up the mandolin and ukelele. She began seriously adding classical music to her repertoire in 2005. With Jimmy Joe as a teacher, music arranger, and inspiration, she continues to learn more and more classical pieces. Together, they play, sing, and harmonize and perform a range of duets in settings from the Farmers Market to house concerts to festivals to weddings and birthday parties. You can visit their Better Halves site to see where they are playing next so you can meet them and hear them in a live setting.
