The War & Treaty

Sunday, August 30, 2017 at 6 PM – 7:30 PM

Following in the footsteps of married duos like Johnny and June Carter Cash, Ashford and Simpson, and Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, the Trotters are obviously madly, deeply in love. And it shows in their on-stage chemistry as well as in the emotional depth and strength of their songwriting and performances. Both artists are phenomenally talented singers, with Michael’s powerful tenor-to-falsetto range and Tanya’s gorgeous soprano inducing multiple goosebump moments throughout the show.

In two mesmerizing and dramatic sets, the Maryland-based husband-and-wife duo of Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Blount Trotter, known as The War and Treaty, took the Red Clay Music crowd on an emotionally charged ride with stunning songs about love, loss, grief, heartache, redemption and love. Did I mention love? That was the overall takeway from this performance.

What’s more, the couple played a show the night before in Harrisburg, PA, and had driven their 32-foot RV all night to get to Atlanta. Even more impressive is the fact that Tanya handles all the driving (and parking) duties. She is woman, hear her roar.
