March 26, 2017 @ 7:30 pm Europe/London Timezone

Bath Festivals returns to Midsomer Norton as The Carrivick Sisters come to the Town Hall for a very special gig.

Twin sisters Laura and Charlotte Carrivick are widely known on the UK folk scene. Their years of experience performing all over the UK and abroad have gained them a strong reputation for engaging live performances, multi-instrumental dexterity (fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar and dobro), tight sibling harmonies and finely crafted original songs.

They have a unique sound incorporating their musical background of American bluegrass and old-time but also being influenced by English folk lore, having grown up in South Devon. 2017 sees the release of their celebratory ’10 Years Live’ album, marking 10 years and counting of performing and recording together.

“Comparisons to Alison Krauss & Union Station would not be out of place, for they are that good, swapping lead vocals and playing Dobro, mandolin and the rest like hardened veterans, but it’s the English folk influences they bring to their music that give them a unique sound.” – R2 Magazine (Rock ‘N’ Reel) 4 **** review

“Formidable multi-instrumental skills and songwriting, maturing at such a steep curve they’ll soon be orbiting far beyond anyone else” – Q Magazine 4 **** review
