Live at Sun Studio
The Country Duo
The Country Duo is Kansas City’s Kasey Rausch and Marco Pascolini. “Live at Sun Studio” is their debut EP featuring seven original songs recorded, you guessed it, live at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, TN. Six of these tunes were featured on the television series Sun Studio Sessions which began airing on PBS stations across the United States in April 2017.
With nearly fifty years of combined gigging and touring experience, the birthplace of rock-n-roll seemed a natural choice to begin the duo’s recording career. The place where Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Howlin’ Wolf got their start is now where The Country Duo has found theirs as well. Rausch’s voice and Pascolini’s pedal steel and baritone guitar echo the history of what was once Sam Phillips’s Memphis Recording Service.
Kasey Rausch is a 5th generation musician, songwriter and co-producer of River Trade Radio on KKFI 90.1FM. She has shared billings with Joe Ely, Peter Rowan, Kris Delmhorst, Cheryl Wheeler and many more. Marco Pascolini is the stuff of guitar legends. For more than twenty years he has forged his path as one of the most well-respected musicians in Kansas City.
Together, The Country Duo has played the famous Station Inn (Nashville, TN), festivals such as Boulevardia, Westport Roots Festival and folk series such as the Green Guitar Folk House. They have shared bills with the likes of Grammy winner Roland White, Dale Watson, Tish Hinojosa and The Elders.
