Classic country duet singing and kickass guitars. Catch ‘em this week at SXSW.

By Blurt Staff

Get set for the debut of Susanna Van Tassel and Dave Gonzalez, whose album Think We’re Gonna Be Alright will be dropping soon. Gonzalez, of course, hails from the Paladins and the Hacienda Brothers, beloved outfits among the roots, blues and Americana camps (the Haciendas took Group of the Year at the ’07 Americana Awards, in fact). He’s joined by Van Tassel, described as “a real honky-tonk sweetheart of the Austin country scene back at the start of the new millennium.” She released a couple of albums then took time off to be with the family and finish up her college degree.

Together the two aim at “reviving the great tradition of country duet singing combined with the blazing sound of baritone and steel guitars.” Meanwhile, they’ll be all over Austin this week during SXSW, so check out the details below if you do plan to be in Texas.
