I'm wondering how many 2 piece prog acts are out there? 

I'm friends with the band "Clatter" - a husband & wife duo who make some very loud music together!  They recently moved from the USA to Sweden, lucky them! 

They once had a video performance of Rush's "Limelight," but it is gone from YouTube.  It was amazing!  Amy often plays 12 string bass for songs like that. 

Here, dig it!

I wish I had the video for "Limelight," it is gone from YouTube! 

Here's the audio:

This is an obscure & cool progressive electronic duo.

Covet is a trio. Their bassist doesn't play in that video because that's one of Yvette Young's solo compositions (and the drummer played on it).

Wacko Right this is not Covet. Thanks for the clarification!

Thanks, cool suggestions!  

It's been touched on before = Anderson & Vangelis, Fripp & Summers, Fripp & Eno etc.  

However, I was more interested in performing/touring acts.  I've seen some amazing duets (Larry Coryell and Steve Khan in a small club with a drum machine), but a performing two-piece would seem to be very powerful if they had the chops.

Hansson & Karlsson are considered to have released the first prog album



ALso

The German duo Magma


There are a few other German duos but can't remember them at this moment

off the top of my head:

Mats And Morgan (Swedish duo from the 90's)
Hansson & Karlsson (Swedish duo from the late 60's)
Alaska (US duo from the late 90's influenced by ELP)

Also, I can't help but mention Hayward & Lodge from the Moody Blues and their one album from 1975 although I'm sure they probably had a backing band.

Jade Warrior was a duo, but they often had guest artists joining them.

Chuck, I would highly recommend Midnight Circus, a two-piece prog folk duo with one studio album and single to their credit from the early seventies, on Bellaphon Records in Germany. In a nutshell, wonderful in both a lyrical and cerebral kind of way, I guess!

A brief duet, but a milestone in prog -- Roy Harper & Jimmy Page....


...a vigorous circular motion hitherto unknown to the people of this area, but destined
to take the place of the mud shark in your mythology...
