Heidi Muller and Bob Webb cross the musical boundaries between original songs and traditional tunes, blending each other’s influences from the Pacific Northwest to the Appalachian Mountains. Their songs feature Heidi’s crystalline vocals backed by Appalachian dulcimers, guitars, mandolin, and electric cello. In addition to Heidi’s five previous solo CDs, they have also recorded four albums together.
Described as “arguably Seattle’s most beloved folk singer/songwriter” in the 1990s by the Heritage Music Review, Heidi has performed nationwide at venues from coffeehouses to the Kerrville Folk Festival. Heidi’s song “Good Road” was the theme song of the “Inland Folk” show on Northwest Public Radio for 30 years and her songs “Cassiopeia” and “Sacred Ground” were published in ‘Rise Again’, the sequel to the legendary ‘Rise Up Singing’ songbook.
Bob Webb is a multi-instrumentalist who has played the cello and guitar since childhood, and mandolin and mountain dulcimer for over 40 years. He performed with the New Orleans-based bluegrass group Swamp Grass in the last USO tour of Vietnam in 1972 and toured with songwriter Kate Long and played in the band Stark Raven, which became the house band for National Public Radio’s “Mountain Stage” show. There he accompanied artists such as Odetta, Tom Paxton, Shawn Colvin, Bill Staines, Peggy Seeger, and Arlo Guthrie. Bob is also a recording engineer and has produced and engineered several public radio documentaries.
Heidi and Bob formed a duo in 2003 in Charleston, West Virginia. They now live in Joseph, Oregon, at the foot of the Wallowa Mountains, where they continue to perform and teach, and host the annual adult music camp, Dulcimer Week in the Wallowas.
