Subvocal: Mark Adkins & Steve Pingry


In their band subvocal, guitarist Mark Adkins and cellist Steve Pingry perform songs full of ambient, layered instrumentation. They take folk music to a new level, using heavily effected acoustic guitar and cello, creating a rich sound that takes the listener to an imaginary space. Their music was once termed as “ambient psychedelic folk noir”, and the duo takes on that unique and newly coined genre with pride. Here they are, performing live and having a conversation with Stephanie Elkins Elkins and Sheila Shigley at Simply Folk.
