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. Perhaps it could be attributed to cosmic design, good old-fashioned magic, or the unspoken, yet understood bond all twins share.
Shook Twins' music attracts fans of both American traditional and modern music. They combine folk, rock, and modern indie, which led them to sharing bills with The Lumineers and The Head and the Heart, as well as playing at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre with Gregory Alan Isakov and Ani DiFranco.
