Wednesday Local Music Radar: The Shook Twins
Sandpoint's remarkable Shook Twins, aka Katelyn and Laurie Shook spent last Sunday at the Three Glasses Jazz club performing with some of their many friends and celebrating the release of their new album You Can Have the Rest. Now the beat-boxing, acoustic guitar-weilding siblings are off with their new and improved full backup band on a mini-tour which will take them to such exotic locations as Boulder, Colorado and Park City, Utah. They return to play a hometown show in Sandpoint March 1 at the Coyote Mojo Cafe before trotting off again for more dates in southern Idaho.
SO! In the meantime, you'll have to go to the Shook Twins download page at DigStation and purchase a nice MP3 copy of the new album, so you can experience the soulful creative spark and powerful harmonic sound the girls do so very well. If listening to the sample track below doesn't convince you, then I've got some q-tips to sell you cause suckah, you bettah clean out yo ears. It's gorgeous!
