Grateful Web Interview with The Shook Twins

The Shook Twins sophomore release, Window is full of frolic and romp. The Portland, Oregon, "Quirky Folk Trio" features identical twins Laurie Shook (vocals, banjo, percussion and beatboxing) and Katelyn Shook (vocals, guitar and mandolin), with Kyle Volkman on bass.

Larry Keel | 'Classic' | CD Review

I knew I'd be writing this story, today.. That's likely why he was on my mind.  Of course he was in a white suit, with an arrow headband on his head.  [I'm a child of the seventies, after all..] But instead of playing for laughs, he was picking his banjo with fire, along with a bevy of world-class bluegrass musicians.  This was an especially fun dream, considering I've never seen him perform in any capacity beyond the movie theater.
