Ginny Reilly and David Maloney are at it again, coming together to deliver delightful harmonies to old fans and new with their special ‘Christmas is a Comin’ holiday show. Tonight their musical magic will have you curled up by the fire, sipping eggnog, and smelling the pine boughs as they share tunes from their classic 1984 A Christmas Album, which they’ve recently updated with three bonus tracks. One of the most endearing duos ever to grace the West Coast folk scene, Reilly & Maloney played to packed houses throughout the 1970s and 80s. The pair found success with their wonderful blend of voices, their great taste in other songwriters’ material, and their own solid originals. Ginny “still has one of the sweetest voices in folk music,” says the folk and world music website Dirty Linen, “an ethereal soprano that dances lightly around David’s grittier baritone, and the contrast in their voices and their unique sense of harmony makes for some wonderful duets.”
David met Ginny in a San Francisco folk club called The Drinking Gourd in 1969. Soon they were playing for enthusiastic audiences, and eventually they recorded five albums together before their musical paths diverged. These days, Ginny drops down from the Seattle area once in a while to make music with David here by the bay, a wonderful treat for those lucky enough to be in hearing range.
