Guitarist Andrew Hardin and vocalist Jeannie Burns have teamed up as the acoustic duo known as Hardin Burns, featuring heartfelt vocals and fierce country blues guitar. They each bring decades of performing to the partnership: Andrew Hardin toured and recorded with Tom Russell for twenty-five years and performed with many other musicians, including Dave Alvin, Ian Tyson, Katy Moffatt, Nanci Griffith, Eliza Gilkyson, and Ray Wyle Hubbard. Jeannie Burns has performed with The Burns Sisters on eight albums, years of live performances, and two tours as backup vocalists for Arlo Guthrie.
In 2012 Hardin Burns recorded their debut CD, Lounge, which features nine new original songs and a cover of George Harrison’s “Beware of Darkness.” The recording has gotten substantial airplay in the U.S. and abroad. They’ve performed in Texas, New York, Florida, and California, and in 2013 they will be touring internationally.
