The Skally Line duet plays hot oldtime country, fiddle tunes, blues, and ballads. Along with a raucous collection of standards and a bunch of rare old cuts rarely heard live, The Skally Line specializes in creating a Minnesota old time tradition that never quite developed on its own. Tom Cornish and Fred Keller–both long time vets of Minnesota’s roots community–both write songs celebrating the stories of Minnesota old and new. Fred plays mandolins, Tom guitar and fiddle. Together they work up tight harmonies and arrangements, some tasty picking, and a whole lot of fun from the Deep North.
