Sisters get their folk act together with a new LP
Sibling duo The Carrivick Sisters release their fifth studio album on Monday, cementing their standing as bona fide rising stars of the folk and roots world. Over The Edge is a collection of finely crafted songs displaying a maturity that belies the tender years of talented twins Charlotte and Laura.
The girls, raised at Salcombe in South Devon, and now living in Bath, have been playing and writing music together for as long as they can remember, developing a unique style that injects a bluegrass edge into their, nevertheless, very English, harmony-rich sound. They recorded their first CD, My Own Two Feet, in their bedroom at home. This LP has rather more professional credits; it was produced and recorded by Joe Rusby at Pure Records Studios in Yorkshire and it features 11 originals composed by the sisters – nine songs and two instrumentals – and the traditional song Pretty Fair Damsel. Charlotte and Laura perform on guitar, fiddle, mandolin, dobro and clawhammer banjo with clarity, skill and charm. John Breese plays double bass and Blair Dunlop sings harmonies on the track Bird. The LP cover was inspired by a Rex Whistler work and repainted by Laura.
Watch out for our forthcoming interview with the girls.
