The Music Committee and Emmanuel Episcopal Parish are presenting the Clifton Sisters at the Brown Bag Concert on Aug. 21.
The Clifton Sisters hail from the distant shores of Shaw Island. Both 14 years old, they aren't twins, identical or otherwise. Recent graduates of the Shaw Island School, they are also the founding members of the popular band “2 Room School.”
While both proficient on ukuleles, and just beginning their studies on banjo and saw, they mostly perform on guitar, vocals, mandolin and fiddle. They love to make music together and will announce their program from the stage. A special addition is the appearance of violinist Michael Harlow, who recently returned from music camp, sponsored by the Brown Bag concert scholarship.
There is no charge for the concerts but donations are appreciated to help fund the Virgil Cleveland Memorial Scholarship to help local music students like Harlow.
The program begins at noon; arrive early so you can be seated, as the doors will be closed promptly with no admittance once the concert has started. The committee invites attendees to bring a brown bag lunch and join them on the lawn after the concert.
