Foster Greene Duo

New and Classic Country Music
    Country Musicians country rock and popular country music retirement centers


    The Foster Greene Music Duo is a highly experienced acoustic duo that plays music from the heart – music that makes you think, reminisce, want to slow dance, and sing along.  Featuring the rich vocals of Paula Greene Jones and the dynamic guitar work of Dan Foster, the harmonic blend of their voices and the memorable harmonies of the songs they perform make Foster Greene a stand-out in the sea of duo entertainment. 

    Dan and Paula take a fresh approach on “Americana”. For them, this includes old fashioned country music like Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, and Emmylou Harris.  They love singer-songwriters, many of whose careers began in Texas, such as Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, and Nanci Griffith.  Some of their song choices fly under the radar – songs you may not have heard before but immediately feel like you know. These fan favorites  include “Angel from Montgomery” (John Prine) and  “Our Town” (Iris Dement). Foster Greene also brings you music they’ve written over many years; nothing stirs them more than touching someone with songs they’ve created--tales about life, love, loss, and the American spirit. 

    Experiencing a Foster Greene show, you’ll feel the passion they do for well-crafted songs with lyrics that stir the emotions. What drives them is being a part of something greater than themselves and their desire to connect with their audience.  The simplicity of their voices together, coupled with the warmth of two notes played together on guitar, creates an atmosphere that begs to be listened to. Paula’s warm, emotive voice always gets attention. It’s reminiscent of the likes of Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, and Suzy Boggus, all artists that Foster Greene covers. Dan’s vocals have a sweet, gruff sound like Kenny Rogers, and he always makes you believe every word he sings. 

    Foster Greene brings more than just songs to a show; they’re natural at connecting with people. They talk to the audience, get to know them, and make sure the music is always the right volume for the venue. They recognize those who are singing along (there are always lots who are) and invite folks to join in and grab a dance partner.  These seasoned pros intuitively understand the type of performance needed for each location. Maybe it’s background music,  or perhaps they know people want lively, dance tunes. Whatever is called for, Foster Greene delivers with their wide and varied repertoire. 

    You’ll long remember and talk about a performance you saw by Foster Greene.  You’ll leave the event smiling, humming, and bringing up memories of times past.
