ABOUT

 

Home Remedy is a duo from Ithaca, New York. We play Americana music, to boil it down to one word... 

Mostly, we sing our Original songs in harmony, written on fiddle, banjo and guitar, and sometimes accordion. We also play traditional Old Time & Cajun/Creole Fiddle & Accordion tunes on fiddle/banjo/accordion, and sing a few songs from the "Americana" cannon: Old Time, Country, Bluegrass, Folk. 

Rosie Newton: Fiddle, Guitar, Cajun Accordion, Singing & Songwriting

Lydia Garrison: Fiddle, Banjo, Guitar, Singing & Songwriting

We've spent our lives immersed in Music: American Roots: Old Time, Cajun, Zydeco, and Celtic - as well as regional bands: Donna The Buffalo, the Heartbeats, Bubba George Stringband, for starters - and music from a little further afield: the Beatles, Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, Tracy Chapman, CJ Chenier, Balfa Toujours, Preston & Keith Frank, Emmy Lou Harris, Boubocar & Rokia Traoré, Toumani Diabaté & Ballake Sissoko.... to name just a few. We try to do justice to our musical inspirations...even if we play a different style of music.
