Carrivick Sisters in Dublin and Derry (2, 4 Aug. 2012)

The BIB carried on 11 July news of this year's Maiden City Festival (4-5 Aug.) in Derry, with the news that the Carrivick Sisters (UK; left) would be among the artists taking part in the Saturday evening concert on Craft Village Square.

Thanks to Aileen Galvin of Entertainment Architects for the news that the multi-talented, multi-instrumental, award-winning duo will also be performing in Dublin on Thursday 2 August at the Workman’s Club in central Dublin. Doors open at 8.00 p.m., and tickets are €8 at Ticketmaster.

Laura and Charlotte Carrivick play guitar, mandolin, banjo, dobro, and fiddle between them, as well as being accomplished songwriters and fine individual singers, with the blend of harmonies that siblings often achieve. Their principal influences are bluegrass and old-time music; but there is also a strong folk influence, with many of their original songs inspired by their local Somerset landscape and stories. Their fourth LP, From the fields, was released in autumn last year. Among other honours and achievements, they have won BBC 3’s Upstage Talent Show four times; Laura took 2nd place at the 2008 RockyGrass Fiddle Contest (USA); and earlier this year Charlotte won FOAOTMAD’s Old-time Banjo & Old-Time Fiddle award.
