The Carrivick Sisters - Saturday 26th May

Doors open at 19:45

The Carrivick Sisters are one of the UK's top bluegrass and folk acts. Twins Laura and Charlotte perform their original songs and instrumentals along with a few carefully chosen covers on guitar, mandolin, fiddle, dobro, and clawhammer banjo. Their busy touring schedule has built them a reputation for engaging and entertaining live performances with tight sibling vocal harmonies and multi-instrumental virtuosity. Having grown up in South Devon, an area rich in folk lore and legends, much of their original material is inspired by their local surroundings and history.

As well as the evening concert, the sisters will be running workshops in the afternoon. This will start at 14:30.
