Amanda Walther and Sheila Carabine, the singer/songwriting duo that make up Dala, are as charming as they are talented. The Canadian pair has crossed paths with Folk Alley before - they performed at the Newport Folk Festival in 2009 - and this time they made their way to our studios in Kent, Ohio, for a lovely chat about their path to becoming full-time musicians, being nominated for the Juno Award, family influences, and much more - including an encounter with a grizzly bear.

Listen to Jim Blum's interview with Dala, below, and watch video of their in-studio performances. {This session was recorded in Franklin Hall, Kent State University}
