Identical twin sisters Alanna & Alicia have charmed audiences from Port Fairy to Woodford festivals with their original folky jazz songs, their quality quirky lyrics, sweet harmonies and onstage warmth, wit and fun.

They are excited to bring their beautiful new album, ‘Songs I’m Singing with Me’ which was included in the National Folk Festival’s top albums of 2017, to NSW. 'Songs I'm Singing with Me' is a tribute to Australian troubadour, John Beavis who was an inspiration to them when they first began writing songs. John’s beautiful, poetic songs were not as widely heard as deserved due to of his ongoing battle with mental illness. Alanna and Alicia tell his story with warmth and humour, and sing their own arrangements of his songs, bringing them to a new audience and to those who remember.

Alanna and Alicia are known for their fine songwriting with lyrics that are equal parts heart and humour. They will sing from their previous original 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), Silas Palmer (violin, piano) and 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
