The Chimiak & Zook duo is a project of Emily Chimiak (vocals & violin), accompanied by T. A. Zook (nylon-string guitar). The kernel of this project is to set some of Emily Chimiak’s French great-grandmother’s poetic musings to song, in French, as well as other, more contemporaneous original works. The duo’s video by John Hallberg & Greg Hess was nominated for “Best Music Video” in the 2015 NOVA International Film Festival , and the audio recording of this tune (“La Cendre”) was subsequently awarded an Honorable Mention in the Songwriters’ Association of Washington’s 32nd Mid-Atlantic Song Contest. The duo is currently producing a Hallberg/Hess video of “Giboulée“.
