Curtis Teague and Loretta Simonet’s music comes straight from the heart.   The husband and wife duo’s extraordinary harmonies and proficiency on a parade of stringed instruments create an alluring frame for their poignant original songs and carefully chosen traditional pieces from Ireland and America.  The award-winning duo tours across the U.S., performing with Celtic harp, mandocello, guitars, clawhammer banjo and National steel ukulele, plus a bit of kazoo, harmonica and shakers.
 
Curtis & Loretta have played at folk festivals, folk clubs, concerts, universities, public radio and national cable television. They have performed with Arlo Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Jez Lowe, Greg Brown, Anne Hills, Bill Staines, Holly Near, Tanya Savory and Vassar Clements. In 2000, they were honored to be included on a National Public Radio holiday special hosted by Judy Collins, "Do You Hear What I Hear: A Holiday Folk Tour." The couple lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota. 
The concert is co-sponsored by the Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission, Deadwood History, Adams-Mastrovich Family Foundation and Black Hills Pioneer.
