THE COUNTRY DUO
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.
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. Sun Studio, 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. Look for The Country Duo on Season 8 of the television show Sun Studio Sessions.
