Jim Brunberg and Jeff Pehrson met in a San Francisco cafe 23 years ago and almost immediately fell into a musical relationship. That connection has been responsible for 12 albums of original music, thousands upon thousands of miles on the road, a handful of awards, several ill-fated record deals and two houses built of broken B strings. The Box Set Duo has been entertaining audiences these many years with their powerful songs, brought to life by inspired guitar interplay and vocal harmonies that warm the senses.
The subject matter, as with the finest folk music, ranges from politics to relationships and everything in between, all delivered with a heart and wit that has brought rave reviews. Amy Ray of the Indigo Girls once described them as “a cross between the Grateful Dead and The Smothers Brothers.” Though Jim and Jeff have both been busy pursuing other endeavors the last few years, (Jim owns and operates his own music venue, Mississippi Studios in Portland, Oregon and Jeff is a member of Bob Weir and Phil Lesh’s band, Furthur), Box Set Duo will engage your hearts, burst your sides and leave you with a song on your mind.
