Vocalist Ardys Ramberg says her collaboration with pianist Bradford Hoopes generates songs that are "sometimes sweet, sometimes nasty, sometimes familiar and sometimes our own." The Lawrence duo renders its take on blues, ballads and bebop in a comfortable outdoor setting where passing trucks and trains often augment the musicians' sound. Ardys and Bradford perform at 8 p.m. today at The Gaslight Tavern, 317 N. Second St.
