The Carrivick Sisters - one of the UK’s top young bluegrass and folk acts - will be appearing at The Priory Centre, in St Neots, on October 10.

Twins Laura and Charlotte will perform original songs and instrumentals along with a few carefully chosen covers on guitar, mandolin, fiddle, dobro, and clawhammer banjo.

Their busy touring schedule is rapidly gaining them a reputation for engaging and entertaining live performances with tight vocal harmonies and multi-instrumental virtuosity. Having grown up in 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 touring all over the UK, the Carrivick Sisters have performed at major festivals in Canada and mainland Europe. They have released five studio albums to much critical acclaim and airplay worldwide.

Their sixth studio album, 10 Years Live was recorded at The Convent, in Stroud, and is a 10-year retrospective and celebration, with half of the album being old favourites chosen by fans and the other half previously unrecorded material.

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. In 2007 they won the South West Busker’s and Street Entertainer’s Competition, gaining themselves their first spot at Glastonbury Festival.

Admission is £9 for non-members and £8 for members. Starts 8pm. £8.00
