In music theory, a natural is an accidental which cancels previous accidentals and represents the unaltered pitch of a note. So it is an interesting coincidence that the two members of The Accidentals, Katie Larson and Savannah Buist , are natural musicians.
The Accidentals nature ability and passion for their craft is evident in their music, lyrics, and collaborative efforts. Collaboration is what brought them together. And it is this collaboration, a deep, collective determination to reach an identical purpose, that will keep them together for a long time.
Indie Folk is a music genre that arose in the 1990s from musicians in the indie (independent) rock community influenced by folk and classic country music. Indie folk combine the catchy melodies of indie rock with the acoustical sounds of contemporary folk music.
Also occasionally called Lo-Fi Indie, Indie Folk pulls influence from traditional and contemporary folk music, classic country, and indie rock. Many indie folk bands tend to be thick on complicated instrumentation, lyricism, and multi-voiced harmonies. They're basically the bands who make a new direction of contemporary folk music palatable to indie rock audiences.
