The Burns Sisters

The Burns Sisters have shared the stage with many great folk legends, including Arlo Guthie, Tom Paxton, Pete Seeger, Odetta, Jimmy Lafave, David Amram,  Radoslav Lorkovic, Chris Thile, Fred Eaglesmith,  Willie Nelson, Sarah Lee and Johnny Irions, Folk Uke, and  even the Boston Pops.  They have played venues from Carnegie Hall to the Grand Old Opry, and from hills of Northern Thailand to the hills of Clare Ireland. They have graced many a track with their beautiful backup harmonies, on projects too numerous to mention.  The sisters are mainstays at The Woody Guthrie Folk Fest in Okemah Oklahoma, and will be there this July, 2015, singing their hearts out with songs from their new CD.

Annie and Marie have both had their songs featured on television including ‘ER’ and ‘Holiday High school Reunion’

“Annie has a bell-like, steady, warm and heartfelt voice. It is so pleasurable to listen to someone who uses her instrument in such a commanding and sensitive way. — Rosanne Cash – American singer-songwriter and author

Looking Back Our American Irish Souls, I think it a truly magnificent, quite superb piece of work. Your beautiful voices blend so perfectly, the vocal performances and the playing throughout is perfect too…and so moving…you have injected new life onto some old classics (From Clare To Here, Ned Of The Hill, Free-Born Man, and Too Ra Loo are just excellent versions…and even the sometimes-abused Danny Boy is treated with grace and feeling giving it the dignity it deserves.), and your take on Kilkelly is by far the best version I’ve yet heard. And, I believe Workhouse – given the theme – should be heard by EVERYBODY on this island NOW…. The engineering/ production is as good as it gets.”
