On the North York Moors

The Magnolia Sisters

Mon 28 July 2014

It’s exclusive, it’s intimate, it’s Cajun and it’s Creole…But The Magnolia Sisters are so much more too. To be sure, they excel with their dancehall favourites and beautiful front porch ballads from the Southwest of Louisiana, but legendary Sisters lynchpin Ann Savoy has also recorded a Grammy-nominated album with LINDA RONSTADT, the Sisters’ sublime Acadian harmonies recall KATE & ANNA McGARRIGLE at their peak and this female folklorist supergroup – featuring Savoy, Jane Vidrine, Anya Burgess and Lisa Trahan - has been described by All Music as the missing link between ‘a bayou FAIRPORT CONVENTION and a feistier, female BEAUSOLEIL…’ So hey – mon Dieu! - let’s roll out the red carpet and…Allons danser!
