I am ecstatic to announce that "A Thorn Among Roses," the Dodworth Duo's debut album presented by the Dodworth Saxhorn Band, was released on October 4th, 2017. The Dodworth Duo, consisting of Julie Craigo,  Ted Badgerow, and myself (Elizabeth Mitchell), perform American music of the 19th century focusing on the Civil War era. Accompanied by Ted on guitar, banjo, harmonica, flute and pennywhistle, we sing American classics such as "Clementine", religious pieces like "Amazing Grace", Stephen Foster favorites like "O! Susanna", and many more. In addition to being delightfully entertaining the Dodworth Duo also educates, giving our audiences a taste of America's  past through story and song. 


Our new album "A Thorn Among Roses" is a journey through the Dodworth Duo repertoire including many audience favorites such as "Oh Shenandoah" and "Danny Boy." In addition to our typical solo and duo arrangements, Ted, Julie and I also recorded trios specifically created for this album. I am so excited to share "A Thorn Among Roses" with you and hope that you enjoy it! To learn more about the Dodworth Saxhorn Band, click here.
