This long awaited 4th album from husband and wife duo, Charlie Beck & Charmaine Slaven, celebrates their sustaining musical partnership and shared adventures that now includes a little girl, Hazel. Hazelnut features many inspired original compositions alongside venerable traditional numbers. Starting as buskers at the Pike Place Market in Seattle in 2005, Squirrel Butter has devoted countless hours behind the strings honing their craft at settings ranging from weddings to funerals, bars to bat mitzvahs. Charlie’s ability as a multi- instrumentalist is a delight throughout, with sharp banjo playing being especially notable. Charmaine shines with drive and refinement on guitar and fiddle, plus she dazzles with her step dancing. Their well matched voices engage with soul and sensitivity as they share roles of taking lead and harmony. Squirrel Butter thrives in a variety of musical atmospheres while staying grounded to their traditional roots.
