“The thing that flags them as extraordinary is their sibling vocal blend, deep and seamless and relaxed.” -New York Times. These dynamic performers uphold a breathtaking folk sound, graced by charming harmonies. When the two sisters come together in ecstatic and seamless “blood harmony,” it’s a sound that continues to haunt long after the songs are sung, leaving an electrical charge behind like a sparkling tracer in the air. Sill equally distinctive as soloists, Lily’s warm, smoky alto is the counterpoint to Madeleine’s crystalline, bell-like soprano. Mix, mingle, eat and drink at six, and listen to Lily & Madeleine at 7. $15
