Shook Twins and Rabbit Wilde

 

The Miners Foundry is pleased to present Shook Twins and Rabbit Wilde on Wednesday, November 2, 2016.  Beautiful twin harmonies layered upon acoustic and electric instrumentation set the sound of the Shook Twins apart, creating a unique and eccentric blend of folk, roots, groove, and soul.  With their widely varying influences, 3 distinct vocal styles, and copious amounts of foot-stomping, Rabbit Wilde demonstrate a sound and presence at once original and familiar.  Doors are at 7:30 p.m. and the show begins at 8:30 p.m. This is a standing / dancing concert with limited seating available.  Tickets are $18 in Advance and $20 at the Door.  Ticketing fees may apply.  Advance sales close at 4:00 p.m. the day of the show.  Tickets are available online, by phone or in person at the Miners Foundry, or in person Briar Patch Co-Op.

Born and raised in Sandpoint, Idaho, Shook Twins are an Indie folk-pop band hailing from Portland, Oregon.  Identical twins Katelyn and Laurie Shook and Niko Daoussis form the band’s core.  Central to Shook Twins’ sound is their wide range of instrumentation:  banjo, acoustic and electric guitars, electric bass, mandolin, electronic drums, face drum (beatbox), glockenspiel, ukulele, banjo-head drumming and electric instrumentation, coupled with Laurie’s inventive use of percussive and ambient vocal loops, and Katelyn’s re-purposed telephone microphone.  The blend sets the Shook Twins apart, creating a unique and eccentric blend of folk, roots, groove, and soul.

 

 

Rabbit WildeBackyard folk seasoned by the edge, polish and fervor of big-city inclinations is at the root of Rabbit Wilde‘s  high-energy sound and stage presence.

The group revamps classic string band instrumentation with homespun percussion and the unique integration of six-string ukulele and cello.

With their widely varying influences, three distinct vocal styles, and copious amounts of foot-stomping, they demonstrate a sound and presence that’s at once original and familiar, appealing to audiences of all generations and genres.

Rabbit Wilde melds the choicest bits of indie rock, pop, blues, soul, and orchestral arrangement in with their trademark brand of front porch shaking Americana.
