PRINCETON — Princeton Coffeehouse will host the folk duo, The Cantrells, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Open Prairie, United Church of Christ, 25 E. Marion St., Princeton.

Al and Emily Cantrell, perform original acoustic folk and bluegrass music along with Celtic, western swing and traditional American tunes. The Cantrells have been touring and performing in concerts and festivals since 1985. They are based in Nashville.

Emily Cantrell sings in a fluid, jazzy style reminiscent of Joni Mitchell while her husband Al Cantrell plays off his wife’s Martin guitar with fiddle and mandolin. Their performances feature Emily’s songs, her rhythm guitar (especially her swing style), and Al’s contest-winning fiddling in traditional, swing and Irish styles. Their duets include a wide variety of songs from bluegrass to Broadway musicals.

The duo is a National Public Radio favorite. Robert Redford chose the Cantrells to play music in his movie, “A River Runs Through It.”

The Cantrells’ performance at the Princeton Coffeehouse is sponsored by Jon McCutchan, Bureau Valley Vision Care.

The Princeton Coffeehouse offers a full season of traditional and modern folk, blues and bluegrass music from August through May. Season subscriptions are available. A single show admission is $12 at the door.
