Jacquie Manning and Rich Prezioso, known as “Small Potatoes” are listed as a “favorite act” by coffeehouses, clubs and house concerts across the U.S, with repeat appearances at major folk festivals.  Their music ranges from country, blues, and swing to Irish, with songwriting that touches on all of those styles and more. They both sing, play guitars and an array of other instruments. They even yodel.  Small Potatoes performs with two great voices, some fine guitar playing, and a touch of tin whistle, flute, mandolin, bodhran and other percussion toys. Together they present a truly rare blend of vocal and instrumental abilities, award-winning songwriting and arranging talents. Their attention to the little things, the warmth, the humor and a rapport with the audience make for a memorable performance.  Visit smallpotatoes.com.
