Carrivick Sisters
£10; £8 members & conc

“Demonstrating rare instrumental and vocal superiority that puts their colleagues to shame… this is one duo which is going places.” Maverick Magazine 5*review

Just out of their teens, twin sisters Charlotte and Laura Carrivick have grown up playing and writing music together. Their unique style shows their strong bluegrass influences without obscuring their English roots. With tight harmonies that only siblings can achieve, they perform their original songs on guitar, fiddle, mandolin, dobro and clawhammer banjo. They have performed both in the UK and internationally, and their fourth CD is due for release any minute!
