Opposites can attract when it comes to music. James Moors and Kort McCumber were aficionados and performers of different genres of music when they met in 2005 at the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Song School. They decided those differences could make for some interesting music, which includes rock, classical and bluegrass. Each performer would join the other for a few songs at their individual concerts; they decided to make the pairing official when it was obvious how well their voices blended.
