Top Five On Friday - 7/10/09

Top Five!

Top 5 Rock Couples (In this case where both parts of a couple are in the music industry)

I'm going to cheat here - many of these are not actually 'rock' musicians.

1) Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy. She's a famous Canadian fiddler, and he's . . . also a famous Canadian fiddler.

2) Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. No more need be said for this one.

3) Elvis Costello and Diana Krall. She is a jazz musician. He has performed nearly every style of music including jazz.

4) Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh and the late Frankie Kennedy. She is a fiddler from Donegal. He was a flute player from Belfast. Together, they became Altan.

5) A tie! Joe Falcon and Cleoma Breaux were the King and Queen of Cajun music back in the 1920s. Marc and Ann Savoy are the current King and Queen.

Well Elvis is a rock musician :P He'd kick your butt in a nice way if you said otherwise... We of course shared that couple :)
