The Carrivick Sisters at Edinburgh Folk Club, Wed 21st Sept

We thought it might be nice to feature a couple of identical twins at EFC and Jedward were unavailable.......
However, I'm sure we'll all be much happier with this duo especially in terms of musical quality.

"The Carrivick Sisters are twins Laura and Charlotte Carrivick from South Devon, England.

They play a variety of bluegrass instruments (mainly guitar, mandolin, banjo, dobro and fiddle) with vocal harmonies and are both songwriters. Although their background is in bluegrass, their music has a strong folk influence which is evident in their original songs, many of which are inspired by their local landscape and stories.

The Carrivick Sisters are experienced performers, having played all over the UK, in Europe, and in Canada. They have recorded four CD’s so far: “My Own Two Feet” in 2006; “Better Than 6 Cakes” in 2007; “Jupiter’s Corner” released in April 2009; and “From the Fields” due for official release on the 22nd August 2011.

The Carrivick Sisters first started performing as a duo in 2006, originally as buskers before starting to play more and more proper gigs, turning professional when they left school in 2007. As well as the playing as ‘The Carrivick Sisters’, Laura and Charlotte have been a part of other larger bands: Blue South; Miles Apart; Banjo Accelerator; Kick Up the Grass; and currently ‘Andsome and Some.

In 2007 they won the South West Busker’s and Street Entertainer’s Competition, gaining themselves their first spot at Glastonbury Festival. In 2008 Laura achieved 2nd place at the RockyGrass Fiddle Contest in America. More recently, the Carrivick Sisters were finalists in the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards 2010."

“I am very impressed by The Carrivick Sisters, one of the best young duos I’ve heard. The girls sing and play as one and their work is characterised by great musicality. They are not only very talented instrumentalists and singers but they write really good songs as well.” – Ralph McTell

Actually, I think I'd like to see them whether they can play or not.
