Shovels & Rope is a Charleston-based duo consisting of Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent. Formed in 2010, they perform as an energetic two-piece band, stirring up a righteous racket with two old guitars, a handful of harmonicas, the occasional keyboard, and a junkyard drum kit harvested from an actual garbage heap and adorned with tambourines, flowers and kitchen rags. Raw and imagined, effortless and insightful, the pair's panoramic songwriting and raucous performances drive Shovels & Rope to the top of our must see list.
