Cathy Guthrie and Amy Nelson are both daughters of world famous musicians, but remain incredibly down to earth. They formed their comedy songwriting duo Folk Uke in 1996, and have frequently toured in support of Arlo Guthrie and Willie Nelson, in addition to garnering their own unique success. Folk Uke was actually on tour right when the pandemic hit in March 2020, and have stayed fairly active despite having all their remaining shows cancelled. Longtime friends of our host Brian, Amy and Cathy catch up with us as they discuss their current music-making plans, and a scheme to postpone shows in order to keep getting mentioned on local media outlets in Austin, TX. Hear them on Spotify, and follow them on Instagram.
