The Burnett Sisters


Growing up playing music together and learning traditional music by ear from the oldtimers in Boone, North Carolina, the sisters' sound is focused around the type of vocal harmonies that can only come from the unique bond shared by siblings, expertly complemented by tight instrumental arrangements and a bona fide love of the traditional songs they play. To assign a genre to The Burnett Sisters would be to oversimplify the breadth of their musical influences – at a typical show, an old-time fiddle tune might be followed by a Patty Loveless song, a driving bluegrass standard or a soaring a capella gospel harmony number. Having grown up competing in festivals as individuals and then forming a band when the youngest was six years old, the Burnetts have been excited to play traditional music in venues from Maine to Missouri, Florida to Arkansas. As the Bluegrass Standard noted, "With more than a decade of playing music, The Burnett Sisters brings its harmony sound to festivals and events across the United States...The North Carolina based group presents a unique blend of traditionally rooted music, influencd by bluegrass and classic country greats alike". ​ With a repertoire that's equal parts old-time and bluegrass, country and gospel, this Billboard charting band navigates the diverse source material effortlessly, diving into the songs with an attention to detail and an appreciation for nuance that lends an authenticity and a feeling of genuine expression rarely matched in today's traditional music.
