Court Yard Hounds debut at SXSW
Martie Maguire and Emily Robison, who will have their debut disc out in May on Columbia, played a couple of songs on KGSR Thursday morning live, according to John T. Davis.
The sisters later played at the Sony Music party in the afternoon. Davis said the Hounds played "bluegrass-inspired" original songs.
Davis referred to the Maguire and Robison as "charismatic and agile performers and blessed with the sort of organic harmonies that nothing but shared DNA can inspire."
Robison assumed more of the lead vocals, while trading guitar, Dobro and banjo duties. They were backed by a trio, playing Then Again, The Coast, Fear of Wasted Time and the first single It Didn't Make a Sound. The Coast and Fear of Wasted Time are available for listening on the Hounds' MySpace page.
The Dixie Chicks announced earlier this week that they would go on tour with The Eagles and Keith Urban. This will be the Chicks' first live shows in four years. Lead singer Natalie Maines is not involved with Court Yard Hounds.
