Twins bring country folk music to Upper Sheringham acoustic venue
West Country twins the Carrivick sisters bring their blend of bluegrass country and folk music to the new Upper Sheringham Acoustic cafe venue on Saturday June 18.
Laura and Charlotte from South Devon 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 released three CD's so far: My Own Two Feet in 2006; Better Than 6 Cakes in 2007; and Jupiter's Corner released in April 2009.
They 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.
