Shook Twins Confirm Bozeman Concert

Portland-based sister folk duo, Shook Twins, will perform at The ELM in Bozeman on Saturday, June 25, 2022 with The Madeline Hawthorne Band.

Shook Twins create a special brand of quirky folk music, which infuses beatboxing, looping, and electronics — all seamlessly intertwined with their acoustic instrumentation and talented vocal harmonies.

Identical twins Katelyn Shook [vocals, guitar] and Laurie Shook [banjo, vocals] released their first album You Can Have The Rest in 2008. Since then, they’ve been steadily growing their fanbase, consistently touring across the country, sharing bills with everyone from Ryan Adams to The Indigo Girls.

Their 14-track album, Some Good Lives, came out in 2019 and received very positive reviews. PopMatters said “Some Good Lives is as affirming as it is magical.” Atwood Magazine spoke highly of the album, saying A moving testament to our life and times, Shook Twins’ emotive Some Good Lives resonates with warm energy and raw humanity.”

Madeline Hawthorne is a Bozeman-based singer songwriter who released her debut solo album, Boots, in 2021. Madeline has a special place in The ELM’s history, as she performed during The ELM’s open house on September 3, 2021. We’re excited to have her return!

About Shook twins

It just happened. Perhaps, it could be attributed to cosmic design, good old-fashioned magic, or the unspoken, yet understood bond all twins share. One day back in 2007, identical twin sisters Katelyn Shook [vocals, guitar] and Laurie Shook [banjo, vocals] found themselves writing, recording, and performing as Shook Twins. To their recollection, the pair never hatched a plan or even properly discussed it. Hundreds of shows, four albums and 2 EPs later, the duo continue to tread this path.

“Neither of us remember a time where we planned things out, it all unfolded naturally,” affirms Katelyn. “We simply started to play out and call ourselves Shook Twins, because that’s simply who we are.” “We never set specific goals either,” adds Laurie. “We talk about our hopes and dreams, but we’ve just let everything grow organically with the band. We’ll see what happens next.” Since their 2008 debut You Can Have The Rest, Shook Twins have conjured up dreamy folk with ghostly traces of Americana tradition uplifted by transcendently hummable melodies and lilting cinematic instrumentation. Along the way, legendary New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman, USA Today, Langhorne Slim, Mason Jennings, and more fell under their spell and publicly professed adoration. Continue reading…
