From The Fields is the new album from South Devon duo The Carrivick Sisters, a heady combination of traditional bluegrass instrumentation with a splash of pedal steel and a folk sensibility taking inspiration from the sites and sounds of the south western corner of England all wrapped up and delivered with pure sibling harmonising by twins Laura and Charlotte Carrivick.
At 21 years old The Carrivick Sisters are already experienced live performers having played across the UK, mainland Europe and in Canada, From the Fields is their fourth album following My Own Two Feet (2006), Better Than 6 Cakes (2007) and Jupiter’s Corner (2009), they started performing as a duo in 2006, honing their skills busking and playing live until turning professional in 2007 after leaving school.
The sisters are a extremely talented pair, the album features all originals songs and they play guitar, mandolin, banjo, dobro, fiddle and glockenspiel on the recording, additional support is provided by BJ Cole (Pedal Steel), Eleanor Cross (Double Bass) with guest appearances from John Breese (banjo), Matt Crum (melodeon) and David Kosky (guitar), production is handled by Joe Rusby (the brother of Barnsley Nightingale Kate), they are currently on tour in England with dates booked through to November with a number of festival appearances including Moseley Folk and an appearance at a favourite watering hole of mine The Pack O’ Cards in Combe Martin (check the gig page for dates).
