TAARKA

"Their voices sound fantastic together...Enion is a marvelous violin player, and David is her equal on mandolin." -No Depression

Taarka seamlessly fuses brilliant instrumental chops with songwriting of great depth and creativity, cooking up musical "sustenance that stays with you long after you've pushed away from the table." Adventurers through the many landscapes of music and true world travelers, veterans of 1000-year floods and veggie oil tour buses, David (voice, guitar octave mandolin, mandolin) and Enion Pelta-Tiller (voice, 5-string violin) spin stories and melodies that delight, inspire, and move all who listen. The Resonant Rogues, based out of Asheville, NC are the songwriting soul child of partners Sparrow and Keith J. Smith. With influences that include Appalachian old-time, Balkan folk music, Swing manouche, and early New Orleans Jazz, they take their favorite flavors and blend them into a delicious, danceable dish that is enjoyable for folk music connoisseurs, while still being accessible to the casual listener. The Resonant Rogues have toured relentlessly over their 4 year history, covering most of North America and Europe. Their new record, Hands in the Dirt landed at #18 on the Folk Music Charts, and is available now on Bandcamp, ITunes, CDBaby, Amazon, Spotify, etc.
