Twin Kennedy to Perform at Gaslight Theater Sept. 28

By Staff | Sep 22, 2021

Carli and Julie Kennedy will perform at the Gaslight Theater in Sistersville on Sept. 28 at 7p.m.

ArtsLink presents Twin Kennedy, who will bring a combination of folk, jazz and Celtic musical genres to the Gaslight Theater in Sistersville on Tuesday, September 28, at 7:00 pm. Their musical bond is as strong as their small town roots. Twin Kennedy, comprised of Canadian West Coast twin sisters Carli and Julie Kennedy, have been making music together since they could talk. Born and raised in the small town of Powell River, BC, Twin Kennedy grew up perfecting their harmonies and dynamic live performances, while making their name known throughout their small community as a family band.

Growing up in a musically infused family, it is no wonder that these sisters crafted their sound through a unique fusion of their background in country, folk, jazz and classical music. With years of classical training, including their Bachelors Degrees in Music Performance from the University of Victoria, the sisters have found their home in country music. With Carli on vocals, guitar, and banjo and Julie on vocals, fiddle, and bass guitar, these petite powerhouses will fill your soul with joy and warmth through their seamless harmonies and heartfelt songwriting.

ArtsLink’s administrative coordinator, Donna Earley, remarks, “Marianne Hughes and I saw these very talented young ladies perform at a presenters’ conference in Lancaster, PA, and they are phenomenal!

Those of you who were able to see Twin Kennedy when they were here back in 2018 know what a wonderful show’s to come.”
