Shook Twins (shooktwins.com) are not your average folk duo. The sisters, Laurie and Katelyn, have some tricks up their sleeves. You wouldn’t expect a small-town girl from North Idaho (Sandpoint) to drop a beatbox in the middle of a song. Katelyn plays the guitar, glockenspiel and mandolin, sings opera into a telephone and bocks like a chicken. Laurie plays wah-wah banjo and loops various melodies and beats to make it sound like more than just two identical twin sisters. Together they sing in twin harmony, which is a whole different experience from non-twin harmony.
Shook Twins’ sound is sculpted from the artists who inspired them most: The Beatles, Ani DiFranco, Joni Mitchell, Feist and Bjork. They bring an exciting, lighthearted energy to the stage wherever they play, and have performed with artists such as Ryan Adams, Mason Jennings, Michelle Shocked, JJ Grey and Mofro, Darol Anger, BoDeans, Elephant Revival, The Head and the Heart and many more.
