Identical twins, Laurie and Katelyn Shook, have spent the last six years pursuing their passion for music and winning fans over by playing their unique style of quirky Folk throughout the Northwest and beyond.
On Friday, Sept, 20, thanks to Seth J. Brown and To Entertain U, LLC, you can catch the Shook Twins at The Egyptian Theater.
A music critic called their work:
Born and raised in Sandpoint, Idaho, Shook Twins are a quirky folk band now hailing from coniferous forested Portland, Oregon. Identical twins, Katelyn and Laurie Shook, Kyle Volkman & Niko Daoussis form the core quartet. Central elements of the Shook Twins sound are a wide range of instrumentation, including banjo, guitar, upright bass, mandolin, face drum (beatbox), glockenspiel, ukulele, djembe and their signature golden egg. Beautiful twin harmonies, layered upon acoustic instrumentation coupled with Laurie’s inventive use of a looping machine, and Katelyn’s repurposed telephone microphone ,set their sound apart, creating an eclectic and eccentric blend of folk, roots, pop and fun.
