Based out of New Mexico, folk duo Tina and Her Pony combine a love for traditional Appalachian folk with "radical, queer lyrics, uncommon instrumentation and vocals tighter than your mama's brazier." All joking aside, the duo's harmonies are truly something to be noted, featuring two voices that meld together to create a smooth, pleasant, rarely witnessed sound. Tina lists their influences as being female folk greats such as Joni Mitchell, Ani DiFranco, and Jenny Lewis, and the duo joins these women in creating confessional tunes with a strong, proud edge to them. With two women who are multi-instrumentalists as well as brilliant singers, Tina and Her Pony is an act that should not be missed.
Tina and Her Pony performs on Wednesday, July 31st, 8 p.m. at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way, $5-$8. abilenebarandlounge.com.
