Witham: Musical sisters return to the Institute
3:00pm Thursday 10th January 2013 in News
The winter weather might be miserable, but a spot of sunshine is promised as a popular duo of sisters return to play live at the Institute.
The Carrivick Sisters previously played in Kelvedon two years ago and left a lasting impression on their audience with their lively bluegrass and folk music.
Twins Laura and Charlotte are talented multi-instrumentalists, playing guitar, mandolin, fiddle, dobro, and clawhammer banjo.
After growing up in south Devon, the sisters’ first performances as a duo were as buskers, before they progressed to play more formal gigs after turning professional when they left school in 2007.
Nowadays, the twins tour across the UK and have played major festivals in mainland Europe and Canada.
They have also released four albums, the most recent of which was 2011’s From The Fields.
Also on the bill at the Institute this week is House of Trees - a combination of Swedish and English musicians who blend jazz, folk and classical stylings.
The line-up is completed by folk and Americana singer-songwriter KC McKanzie.
Live at the Institute takes place at 78 High Street. Kelvedon, tomorrow evening.
Doors open at 8pm. Tickets are £12.50 on the door or £11 plus booking fee if bought in advance online.
