Pete Kartsounes and Michael Kirkpatrick have a good time wherever they go and the audience is never left out. You can catch up with the guys by checking out their website and visiting their shows when they're near you.
A high voice, smoky and soulful; a low voice, rich with bravado. Pete Kartsounes and Michael Kirkpatrick come together as The Good Time Travelers. United by a passion for performing, this songwriting and pickin’ duo presents original songs about ‘the journey.’ It’s a simple endeavor: a guitar, a mandolin and two microphones-traveling light, this band fills up your heart, but barely fills a Subaru. Both gentlemen have been leading bands around the west for some time and found each other at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Colorado. At their first campground session, it became clear to all who witnessed the magic of these two troubadours that this was more than just another Town Park jam. In fact, Michael won the prestigious Telluride Troubadour Competition in 2014 and Pete had taken an honorable first runner up in 2011 and 2013. Pete and Michael began co-writing in the summer of 2014, focusing on the alchemy of their unique voices and instrumental styles. Expect good things from The Good Time Travelers first album release, due at the start of 2016.
