The Bows and Ties Make Colorful, Sweet Folk Music

Meaghan Gasch and Sarah Galvan are the Bows and Ties. When we met up with the multi-instrumentalist folk duo, each were adorned with at least one bow, but we didn't notice too many ties between the two.

The two songstresses hail from very different backgrounds, but both are music therapists. Gasch is a little bit classic country. She was homeschooled by her older Baptist mother in College Station, Texas. Galvan is Hispanic and comes from Queens, attended NYU, and grew up on the Rolling Stones. Gasch is more Hank Williams; Galvan is more Johnny Cash. But birds of a folky feather, do flock together.
