Acoustic Guitar Sessions Presents Shook Twins

Posted by David Knowles

They're a little bit bluegrass, a little bit rock and roll, and a little bit of everything in between. 

On tour to promote their latest album, What We Do, Shook Twins stopped by Acoustic Guitar's offices to play a song and talk about what got them started playing music. 

Raised in Sandpoint, Idaho, Katelyn and Laurie, grew up in a musical household, but only really picked up the guitar after Katelyn's teenage boyfriend gave her a Fender acoustic. It wasn't long after that the sisters began writing their own songs. After relocating to Portland, Oregon, and forming Shook Twins, they began getting noticed, and were soon sharing stages with the likes of Sarah Jarosz, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Crooked Still, and Ryan Adams. 

Check out the group playing their original song "Thoughts All In" above, and for more information on Shook Twins, have a look at the band's website
