“Beggar’s Ride’s self-titled debut proves that the duo belongs among some of the
best female-led vocally-driven folk groups around.”
-Colin McGuire, The Frederick News Post

Beggar's Ride

Baltimore based Beggar’s Ride is the contemporary folk duo of award winning songwriters Claudia SanSoucie and Kate Maguire. Formed in 2010, their combined talents leave you feeling they’ve performed together for a lifetime. In sync harmonies, intricate guitar arrangements, melancholy yet hopeful lyrics beg the listener to take a smooth ride on sweet melody.
