Jody Stecher & Kate Brislin: Home

WELCOME to the website of Jody Stecher and Kate Brislin. We have been singing together as a vocal duet, doing old-time music, early country, old-style bluegrass, recently composed songs, and some really old traditional folk songs since 1974 and playing guitar, mandolin, five-string banjo, and fiddle. Our recordings have been Indy winners and Grammy finalists.  We are "semi-retired" from touring as a duo but are still singing, maybe better than ever. This website provides access to our music via our CDs, especially to our most recent duet recording called "Return" and to Jody's new recording of songs and tunes he has composed, called "WONDERS & SIGNS", which is receiving a very favorable response for its beauty and originality, and which is now available for purchase.

We've recently added a Music feature for displaying the words to songs and are re-activiting the News and Calendar pages as well.  We're glad you've stopped by to visit. Please have a look around!


"Their music captures the essence and core of traditional music. Their bare-bones approach to this art form ranks them among the legends." 

 Pete Kuykendall, Bluegrass Unlimited

"Jody and Kate have the uncanny ability to crystalize the spiritual essence of an old song, while making it their own."  – BOTMC

"They bring an almost unearthly savvy and sensitivity to Appalachian and early bluegrass material, breathing freshness and vitality into even the most timeworn of standards".  Elderly Catalog
