This rising Celtic roots duo features sisters born in Halifax, raised in Antigonish and steeped in Nova Scotia’s diverse and vibrant musical traditions. They play driving fiddle, piano, guitar, banjo and accordion — and true to the tradition, both sing and step dance as well. They are equally at home with traditional material, driving contemporary and original tunes, and wacky juxtapositions such as Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata woven into a set of fiery reels. They’ve won a variety of awards including Canada’s prestigious “Galaxie Rising Star” in 2010. Says Cheryl Prashkar, President of North East Regional Folk Alliance: “There is something very special about their sound, their dedication and their spirit that drew me to want to see every moment of their performances!” Their newest album, Sterling Road is “the last minute surprise of the year from a major new force on the scene! WOW!!” –Live Ireland radio. Don’t miss this cutting-edge duo in their first Woods Hole performance.
