About the Event
Olivia and Emma Burney are a dynamic sister duo with an indie folk/pop sound. They started singing around the house when they were barely able to walk, and with some vocal coaching from Mom, they began harmonizing well before they picked up instruments. Olivia found her first love in the ukulele after finding one at a garage sale for a dollar. After a few online tutorials, she was well on her way to being the performer and teacher she is today. Currently, Olivia writes the bulk of the tunes the Burney Sisters perform. Not to be outdone by her older sister, Emma picked up a guitar at the age of 9, and began learning songs on her own. Now, she helps Olivia with all of the arrangements and harmonies and has since expanded her instrumental arsenal to include bass, banjo, keys and a recent revival of her love for the fiddle and cello. Their soul-nurturing sibling harmonies and tunes are reminiscent of the Avett Brothers, First Aid Kit, The Staves and The Wild Reeds, and their music can be found on iTunes, Spotify, etc. including their most recent single, "Make Me Happy". You can find The Burney Sisters and all of their upcoming events on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. The Burney Sisters were featured on the cover of the Riverfront Times, and have opened for national acts such as Lake Street Dive, The Avett Brothers, Wynonna Judd, and Lone Star to name a few. The Sisters performed in 2018 and 2019 at the well renowned festival Roots N Blues N BBQ in Columbia, MO.
