Shovels & Rope is an American folk duo of husband and wife Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst. The duo began with two guitars, a junkyard drum kit (harvested from an actual garbage heap- adorned with tambourines, flowers, and kitchen rags), a handful of harmonicas, voices, and above all.. songs. Cary Ann Hearst & Michael Trent prefer to keep it simple. They have cleverly managed to take 3 separate recording projects and combine them into 1 cohesive, folk-rock, sloppy tonk, harmonized, loose but tight, streamlined audience killing machine.
