Tina & Her Pony

Tina & Her Pony

Imagine Indigo Girls with chamber-folk and new grass inclinations, and you’re approaching the idea of Tina & Her Pony.

The Asheville, North Carolina, duo, which has played Roanoke with some frequency over the years, returns to The Spot on Kirk for a Monday evening show. Roanoke-area string band Better Than We Sound opens the show.

The classically trained pair — Tina Collins (tenor banjo, tenor ukulele, guitar, vocals) and Quetzal Jordan (cello, guitar, vocals) — is celebrating a decade since meeting up in Asheville. They played Collins’ music in a quintet called Over Under Yonder; moved to Taos, New Mexico, for a couple of years; released a self-titled album in 2012; and then moved back to the western Carolina city where they met.

Their two albums, rounded out by 2017 release “Champion,” feature multiple guest musicians. Get an idea of what Tina & Her Pony sound like as a duo via videos for “Come Here” (youtu.be/IRct5zFYqFA) and “Telluride” (youtu.be/1jZBE9hA-bY).

For the past decade, Tad Dickens has been writing about music. For now, it remains sunshine and rainbows.
