Two Sisters, the duo, takes its name not from the two sisters in it (Guen and Liz Spilsbury, progeny of contra caller and sword dancer Tom Spilsbury), but from the creepy murder ballad of which they sing many versions. Performing as choristers and soloists in the Washington Revels, Victorian Lyric Opera Company, and other local ensembles since childhood, and recently featured on Musical Traditions Encounter on WOWD-LP FM 94.3 Takoma Radio, the Spilsbury sisters entwine rich, fresh harmonies into some of the oldest songs in English and to new songs by living troubadours such as Archie Fisher. They promise you everything from classical art songs and madrigals to work songs and bawdy ballads. At Janie Meneely's. $15 suggested donation. RSVP/directions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
