Known for their sharp stylings of classic country, this retro-devoted pair have a new album out that includes a zingy, toe-tapping cover of “Walking The Floor Over You.” (Other standout tracks include “I Can't Keep You In Love With Me,” “Memory That Bad” and “Mama’s Prayers.”) Chris and Taylor Malpass recorded the album, “Live at the Paramount Theatre,” at their annual performance in Goldsboro, their hometown.
Authentic as stone-ground grits, the brothers grew up listening to their granddad’s phonograph records. Before they were 10 years old, they were performing in talent shows, barns and churches. They continue to entertain folks today with their smooth vocals, skillful picking and off-the-cuff quips. Learn more about these engaging musicians and their upcoming shows at themalpassbrothers.com.
Editor’s note: A new documentary about the brothers’ musical journey is in post-production. “Heading Home,” from Minnow Media, is planned to air on public television. For updates and sneak previews, visit paramountmalpassmovie.org.
