It’s like seeing double.
Carli and Julie Kennedy are a Canadian powerhouse duo with a musical bond that only identical twins can share. With Carli on vocals and guitar and Julie on vocals and violin, they have developed a sound that is all their own: a fusion of their background in country, folk, jazz, and Celtic music.
The duo will play live at the Flying Canoe West Coast Pub o this Thursday for the pub’s Celtic-themed Thursdays (8 to 11 p.m., no cover).
Originally from Powell River, these sisters are known for their exceptional harmonies, fine musicality, and sincere songwriting style. An undeniably energetic duo, the Kennedys’ performances bring a mix of toe-tapping tunes and intimate, heartfelt songs to the stage.
Carli and Julie have been featured at numerous events and festivals including the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, Islands Folk Festival, Sunshine Music Festival, and Victoria Jazz Festival International. In 2010, Carli and Julie were both accepted on scholarship to the prestigious Berklee College of Music; however, the girls declined the offer to focus on their new record.
The Kennedys have already been featured this year at the Merritt Mountain Music Festival, Mission’s Envision Twilight Concert Series, Vancouver Island Music Business Conference and Butchart Gardens Summer Concert Series.
The twins will make their first trip to Nashville this month to take part in both performance and songwriting opportunities.
Reviewers, colleagues, and audiences alike describe Carli and Julie as “fine players and truly communicative performers.” This dynamic duo is winning over a wide range of audiences with maturity beyond their years as instrumentalists, vocalists, and songwriters.
With a musical connection reminiscent of other Canadian family groups, such as Leahy and the Rankins, audiences are falling in love with the music of Carli and Julie Kennedy.
