Calling their music “old-time Italian,” Martha Hawthorne and Bill Foss play traditional Italian mandolin tunes and songs that will make you feel transported to  an Italian café. Their repertoire includes energetic polkas, evocative waltzes, sensuous mazurkas, wild tarantellas, and beautiful vocal harmonies.
