After great gigs at the National Folk Festival over Easter, identical twin sisters Alanna and Alicia return to Canberra, launching their brand new album, ‘Songs I’m Singing with Me,’ at Smith’s Alternative.

Alanna and Alicia have charmed audiences from Port Fairy to Fairbridge folk festivals, with their original folky/jazz/roots songs, sweet harmonies and onstage warmth, wit and fun.

Known for their fine songwriting with lyrics that are equal parts heart and humour, they will also sing songs from their previous albums, Twinlines 2013, Two in a Book 2010 and Funny She’s So Much Like Me 2006. They will be accompanied by their talented band, Jen Hawley (guitar) and Silas Palmer (piano, violin) with special guest, Sarah Busuttil (violin).

"In concert they are entertaining and lively characters with an unpredictable, unscripted natural humour inspired by close observations and wry story telling. They are brimming with talent, a free spirit and endearing charm" - Jamie McKew, Director Port Fairy Folk Festival.
