Zoe Speaks

Zoe Speaks’ Mitch Barrett and Carla Gover jump in and out of their Eastern Kentucky vernacular to play everything from traditional ballads to guitar-thumping, contemporary acoustic tunes. Their music draws on the sounds of Appalachian music, but they often follow other influences to create a unique sound featuring vocal harmonies and brilliant musicianship. They accompany themselves on guitar, clawhammer banjo, and dulcimer.

During performances, Mitch has also been known to throw in a story, while Carla enjoys getting the audience on its feet with some clogging.
