The Secret Sisters
Hailing from Alabama, USA, this singing and songwriting duo, Laura and Lydia Rogers grew up surrounded by music - both at home, and in the local church, where they first sang publicly, learning to harmonise through singing a cappella. Three albums later and opening concerts for stars such as Dylan, Willie Nelson and Paul Simon, The Secret Sisters have appeared on numerous late night television shows such as Late Show with David Letterman, Hootenanny (New Year's Eve 2010), and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, (March 2012). Very much respected in the industry, the girls have collaborated with Jack White, Elton John (who sang Hank Williams songs with them backstage) and Elvis Costello, to name a few.
‘Their harmonies are a work of art, their grip on their material unerring: If the Andrews Sisters had recorded an album of Carter Family songs during World War II, it would sound just like this.’ (The Washington Post)
Now touring their third studio album, You Don't Own Me Anymore, (which was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Folk Album), the girls perform at the Hawk’s Well Theatre as part of their current tour.
