WoodSongs: Secret Sisters and Striking Matches play at the Lyric Theatre at 6:45 pm on Monday, June 8.
"THE SECRET SISTERS music and harmony first caught the attention of the legendary T Bone Burnett who produced the duo’s self-titled debut and second full-length album, ‘Put Your Needle Down’. From Florence, Alabama—just outside of the legendary music mecca Muscle Shoals, the duo of Laura and Lydia Rogers wrap their flawless harmonies around songs that evoke the timeless feel of classic country, folk and Americana music. The sisters have toured with everybody from She & Him and Paul Simon, filming their own PBS special with Elvis Costello and Jakob Dylan, and recorded music for the platinum-selling soundtrack to The Hunger Games.
STRIKING MATCHES are the Nashville guitar-wielding duo of Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis. They creates an unexpected and unique sound that occupies that sweet spot at the intersection of country, rock and blues, where all of the elements blend to form an authentically raw and rootsy sound that has a timeless and international appeal. Their songs have been featured on ABC’s hit drama series Nashville and T Bone Burnett produced their debut album ‘Nothing But The Silence’."
