Wild Carrot (band)


Wild Carrot (band)

Wild Carrot is a United States folk duo from Cincinnati, Ohio. The group is made up primarily of husband and wife Pam Temple and Spencer Funk.

In 2006 the duo was selected by the U.S. Embassy in Santiago, Chile to represent the United States as Cultural Ambassadors to Chile. Their visit included performances at Expoinglés, a Santiago festival that promotes English as a second language in Chile and celebrates the cultures of several English-speaking countries."WHAT'S HAPPENING: Folk music news & information", "Sing Out!", 49:4, Winter 2006, p.9]

The sound of the group has at times drawn comparison to other husband and wife folk duos like Small Potatoes.Anderson, Jamie, [http://www.wildcarrot.net/press_singout2004.html "Off the Beaten Track: Wild Carrot - "Hope"] , "Sing Out!", 47:4, Winter 2004, p.128] Temple provides the well-crafted songs, soprano vocals and basic guitar accompaniment while Funk adds touches of fingerstyle guitar, mandolin and harmony vocals. On recordings they have been joined by Don Porterfield (bass), Chris Rosser (percussion & vocals) and others. They have also performed as a quartet with Brenda Wolfersberger (bass) and Brandt Smith (banjo). Their 2008 recording, "I've Heard That Song Before", is a collaboration with pianist Hank Ross.
