8th Step - Sally Rogers & Claudia Schmidt

Sally Rogers and Claudia Schmidt proudly announce the release of their third album together, the first in 22 years: Evidence of Happiness, a wonderful collaboration between these very simpatico singers.

Named after one of Claudia’s latest songs, it will delight fans with its whimsical combination of traditional songs, Sally and Claudia’s originals and a few wonderful contemporary pieces, all sung with tight harmonies by the soaring voices of these folk veterans.

Over three decades, these two strong veterans of the folk world have become deep friends, united by a sense of social justice, humanity and harmony. They perform solo and as a duet with guitar, dulcimer and old-time banjo.

Claudia's genre-defying musical activities include jazz and acting while Sally stays in the folk and old time categories, as in a recent award-winning excursion into children's music.

Each has appeared several times on A Prairie Home Companion as well as other radio shows.
