This musical formation was initially birthed for practical reasons, as a cunning plan to get food, when sisters Ornait and Siomha Hennessy were travelling around Australia in 2015.
With a background in Irish folk music, they discovered that they were tapping into an original sound- eclectic but melodic, current but with echoes of the old singing tradition.
With audiences responding enthusiastically, the sisters started to think that maybe this was a survivalist musical duo….with legs…
Now, back in Ireland, they are working on original music for an EP and will be gigging in a number of venues in the coming months.
