“Boasting a bit of a world’s collide aesthetic, the Littlest Birds is a musical duo built around a cello and a banjo. That’s all. But, who needs anything else when you sound as good as these two do. Comprising Sharon Martinson on clawhammer banjo and David Huebner on cello, the Littlest Birds play folk and Americana songs, but both Martinson and Huebner have backgrounds in classical music which adds a polish and compositional depth to their sound. Hailing from the eastern Sierras, the two are veterans of the road, having played in 34 states and appearing at a growing number of festivals and radio shows. On Saturday, they perform at the Abbey.”
