“High Granite Plains"is an infectious, upbeat, dare-I-say raucous song that serves as a calling card for what this band brings to the acoustic table — chugging banjo, half-sung/half-shouted lyrics, and witty, dare-to-taunt-the-grim-reaper attitude.

“Saved” combines three centuries old hymns Mexicali rhythyms and soaring harmonies into one daring and thematic song that explores juxtapositions of sin and prayer.



Adela & Jude have a knack for making the old seem new again. I suppose one might call them revivalists, given that their repertoire includes early twentieth century old-time, country and folk tunes and plenty of originals in that style. A peek beneath the surface reveals something more, and it cuts to the heart of what makes their music so endearing for literate, passionate and conscious music fans.

Journeying into history with memorable performances that transport audiences through lands of harmony and Americana. The Iguana Music Fund award recipients exude a spirited presence that conjures panoramic images of life and death in a time and place of rustic simplicity.

Adela’s sweet disposition belies her deft piano and accordion skill that she learned as a child. Gifted with perfect pitch, she complements Jude, recalling the harmonies of the great country couples, her feet ever stompin' and pumpin' on a portable 1920's field organ. Ever the performer, Adela often pounds a floor tom, runs a melody over the keys and belts out a revivalist hymn simultanously, all the while maintaining her ladylike charm.

Jude is a third generation musician, having criss-crossed the country in the early 1960's with his troubadour dad and dancing mom. Brother Jude is a human rhythm machine with a signature style all his own. Providing a stomping timeline on antique bass and snare drums, while strumming weathered guitars, autoharp, banjo and mandolin.

“Our music is inspired by fire breathing revivalist preachers, giants who cast long shadows and long forgotten musical geniuses who haunt the back roads of history. We’re keeping their voices alive in the here and now.” Says Jude of the musical journey that keeps the duo on the road to bring their music to fervent fans all over the country.

“Faith is really the main flavor of our music,” Jude says of the pair’s thematic songs. “You can have faith in a bottle or faith in a God, but you have to put your faith in yourself more than anywhere else.” Together, Adela & Jude tour the country delivering songs of revivalist proclamations and ballads of forgotten souls to renowned stages including the New England Americana Festival and the legendary Club Passim in Cambridge, MA.
