Don’t be fooled – there’s four of them and three of them are women. But what’s in a name! The Bevvy Sisters are a new band for Irvine Folk Club and they make their debut appearance at the Club on Wednesday 18th September.
The Bevvy Sisters emerged some years ago as an off-shoot from the Edinburgh based Loveboat Big Band. Since then they have played Festivals and Clubs up and down the UK including appearances at Celtic Connections and the Transatlantic Sessions.
Heather Macleod, Kaela Rowan and Lindsay Black are three of the Sisters – the name of the male is a mystery yet to be revealed but chances are that he is the accompanist on guitar or maybe string bass. Information on The Bevvy Sisters is hard to come by. What is known is that the three seasoned voices of Heather, Kaela and Lindsay form glorious harmonies to sing a repertoire that includes vintage, contemporary and original songs featuring Jazz standards, Americana, Gospel and Folk. And their stage performance is nothing if not lively.
The Bevvy Sisters have a huge and growing fan base, including Eddie Reader. Indeed, she likes them so much she wants to be an understudy! , At Irvine Folk Club prepare for heartbreak and hilarity, sweetness and sass from the much acclaimed Bevvy Sisters. ‘From lovelorn to lighthearted, and from murderously melancholic to cowgirl romantic’ was how one reviewer described the content of a Bevvy Sisters gig.
Therefore, to hear this bundle of energy and vocal magic, be in the Irvine Folk Club audience on Wednesday 18th September for 8pm in Vineburgh Community Centre to hear The Bevvy Sisters. And appropriately it’s BYOB at Irvine Folk Club!
