We’re excited to have the Shook Twins back at eTown Hall! The identical twin sisters Katelyn Shook [vocals, guitar] and Laurie Shook [banjo, vocals] will delight you with their dreamy folk music.

Shook Twins

It just happened. Perhaps, it could be attributed to cosmic design, good old-fashioned magic, or the unspoken, yet understood bond all twins share. One day back in 2007, identical twin sisters Katelyn Shook [vocals, guitar] and Laurie Shook [banjo, vocals] found themselves writing, recording, and performing as Shook Twins. To their recollection, the pair never hatched a plan or even properly discussed it. Hundreds of shows, four albums and 2 EPs later, the duo continue to tread this path. “Neither of us remember a time where we planned things out, it all unfolded naturally,” affirms Katelyn. “We simply started to play out and call ourselves Shook Twins, because that’s simply who we are.” “We never set specific goals either,” adds Laurie. “We talk about our hopes and dreams, but we’ve just let everything grow organically with the band. We’ll see what happens next.” Since their 2008 debut You Can Have The Rest, Shook Twins have conjured up dreamy folk with ghostly traces of Americana tradition uplifted by transcendently hummable melodies and lilting cinematic instrumentation. Along the way, legendary New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman, USA Today, Langhorne Slim, Mason Jennings, and more fell under their spell and publicly professed adoration. Simultaneously, they’ve graced legendary stages such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre with Gregory Alan Isakov and Ani DiFranco in addition to sharing bills with The Lumineers, The Head and the Heart, Sarah Jarosz, The Wood Brothers, and many others. Not to mention, they’ve carved a home for themselves after playing Northwest String Summit and Oregon County Fair over ten times each as well as appearing at High Sierra Music Festival, Lightning In A Bottle, Bumbershoot, Hulaween, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Electric Forest, Summer Camp Music Festival, and beyond. During 2012, the band welcomed multi-instrumentalist and “everything dude” Niko Slice on guitar, mandolin, and bass. Rounding out the sound (and the family) further, keyboardist and bassist Aber Miller joined the fold in 2018. Additionally, they welcome a rotating quiver of dynamic drummers, namely Alex Radakovich, Darren Garvey, and Simon Lucas.

Hunter Burnette

Hunter Burnette is an up-and-coming Americana singer/songwriter and artist based out of Denver, Colorado. In 2018 Burnette released his debut EP, “The Good Life,” which won over the hearts of audiences and local musicians alike. Colorado Hall of Fame inductee, Chris Daniels, called him “One of the most exciting Americana/Country/Roots songwriters and performers to come out of the West in the past few years." Burnette released a follow-up Self-Titled EP in October 2019, produced by Ben Wysocki and Eric Tate, Backed by a rotating cast of extraordinary musicians, including members of The Fray, Heavy Diamond Ring, Smirk, Israel Nash, King Cardinal and more, you don’t want to miss seeing this budding act making his mark on the Denver music scene. “With enough farmhouse grit and rock-and-roll swagger to keep it out of the folk and country categories, on his sophomore EP, Denver’s Hunter Burnette puts forth an enlightening album of self-awareness. With soul-searching songs that ask deep questions and paint a picture of a young man becoming a more thoughtful man, and casting off the character flaws of youth, Burnette and his friends have created an intoxicating album of Americana that floats somewhere between alt-country and rock coupled with singer/songwriter narratives and some bluesy vocals.” - Marquee Magazine Photo by: Tori Soper
