WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
“Sweetheart identical twins, Carli and Julie Kennedy were nothing short of awesome. How two, petite and pretty entertainers can play with such gusto and speed is something to see…Classical training seeping into the mix gave the traditional country fiddle vs guitar face-off something special that got the crowd cheering.”
(Sandy Graham, Cashbox Magazine Canada)
“…MAN could they play their instruments! With Carli on vocals and guitar and Julie on vocals and violin they shattered a twin good-girl image in a matter of seconds. These two are true pioneers in the folk, jazz and Celtic genres. Carli is bouncy and effortless on her acoustic while Julie works the fiddle like Jimmy Hendrix on an electric guitar. Together they went through a series of songs that would make anyone who shuns this particular genre think twice.”
(Elena Maystruk, Lithium Magazine)
“When I introduced Julie and Carli at our recent event I told the packed house to “Please sit down, buckle up and hold on…these girls are going to rock this place” …and rock they did. No one was disappointed. It was the most upbeat, positive and fun performance at our place in years! Cannot wait for them to come back to play again…Give them a “rock solid” and well deserved “A”.”
(Terry & Wanda Seay, Hosts of “It’s All About Z Music” House Concerts, Franklin TN)
Nominated for five 2012 BC Country Music Awards, including The Ray McAuley Horizon Award, Roots/Canadiana Award, All Star Band Specialty Instrument Award for Julie on fiddle, Producer of the Year (Paul Shatto for Small Town Stories) and Website of the Year, Carli and Julie were also nominated as the Best Live Act for the 2012 Vancouver Island Music Awards. Reviewers, colleagues, and audiences alike describe Carli and Julie as “true pioneers in the folk, jazz and Celtic genres. Carli is bouncy and effortless on her acoustic while Julie works the fiddle like Jimmy Hendrix on an electric guitar” (Lithium Magazine, 2012.) This dynamic duo is winning over a wide range of audiences with maturity beyond their years as instrumentalists, vocalists, and songwriters.
