What initially began as a husband-wife acoustic duo, with Dave and Taylor Larocco, quickly became popular throughout Durango and the 4 Corners area. The sultry tone of Taylor’s vocals blend seamlessly with the swampy bottleneck slide of Dave’s 1934 National Resonator guitar. For more information, visit http://www.oneroofblues.com/bio
