“In The Company of Strangers” will be released on Feb. 25 by Purebred, a record label created and managed by UNH students. The album was recorded over the last year primarily in the University of New Haven’s Studio B, with Andrew Kinzie ’13 as sound engineer.
Hannah & Maggie are a singer/songwriting due from New York City. They have been favorably compared to Simon & Garfunkel and The Indigo Girls, yet have originality and a unique sound. The duo is noted for blending traditional folk music with a modern-day melodic energy, according to the cover of the album.
