Alexandria, VA – Come to Lloyd House on Friday, April 12, 2019 and listen to Two Sisters, who entwine rich, fresh harmonies into some of the oldest songs in English and to new songs by living troubadours including Archie Fisher. The duo takes its name from the creepy murder ballad of which they sing many versions. By the way, they are two sisters, Guen and Liz Spilsbury. Performing as choristers and soloists in the Washington Revels, Victorian Lyric Opera Company, and other local ensembles since childhood, the Spilsbury sisters promise classic art songs, madrigals, work songs, and ballads. Lloyd House is located at 220 North Washington Street. Take the free trolley that runs every 15 minutes from the King Street Metro station!
The concert runs from 6-8 p.m. Listen to great music with a suggested donation for the musicians. No ticket required – show up and enjoy the music! Beer and wine for sale; light refreshments available as well.
