Open Book / Rick & Michele Gedney
Rick and Michele Gedney, known as the duo, Open Book, have been writing, recording, and performing
together since 2000. Their original music features melody invention and vocal harmonies backed by a tapestry of interweaving guitars. They are currently in the studio working on their fourth album. In addition to writing, touring and recording, Michele and Rick are honored to work as teachers at Dar Williams’ ‘Writing a Song That Matters’ retreat, heading into its 10th season in New York’s Hudson Valley. Their song ‘Go’ has been released by Cry Cry Cry (Dar Williams, Lucy Kaplansky, Richard Shindell) on their new 2020 album, “Live at the Freight”. Open Book was the winner of the 2017 Connecticut Folk Festival Songwriting Competition.
“Open Book exemplifies the low-key power of haunting melody buttressed with expansive harmony, the satisfaction of adroit wordplay entwined with skillfully understated musicianship.” Robert Burke Warren, Chronogram Magazine
