The pair’s warm, understated harmonies and instrumentation find a perfect home in their original folk-rock tunes and a handful of carefully selected covers (Hank Williams Sr, Johnny and June Carter Cash, Gram Parsons, The Jayhawks, etc).
McGovern is a member of longtime local favorite Irish band, The Beggarmen, and Capps spent the better part of a decade performing with the Memphis-based band, The Central Standards, before moving to Iowa City in 2009. His solo debut is entitled The Muddy and the Blue.

He decided some months ago that he wanted to create a live action version of one of his favorite fairy tales. When he decides something, so mote it be. Atticus is the star of this new film version of Jack & the Beanstalk. He is also the scriptwriter/editor, the director, the cinematographer, the costumer, the prop master, the film editor, and the composer/performer of the musical score. His beloved accordion teacher Jill VanDorpe worked closely with him as a coach on this project and she does a beautiful job of playing Jack’s Mother. Atticus expertly cast his father as the Giant (don’t miss his impeccable death scene!), his brother Liam as The Creepy Old Man (wearing my favorite costume in the film), and me as the Cow (who looks uncannily like a panda) and also as the Giant’s Wife. Atticus has created a website that links directly to his YouTube channel to make viewing the film as easy and accessible as possible. Please consider taking ten minutes from your day to view his film and to leave him some encouragement. You will be glad that you did. We are very grateful for your support of our young artist. #artisticautistic #theninthrangerproductions #theninthranger #findthefun #tunedtotruth
