RWMF 2012 a rare opportunity to watch String Sisters perform


KUCHING: The String Sisters will perform at the Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF) in Borneo on July 13 after an almost impossible venture to get the whole band together.

This is a unique opportunity to witness the members of the String Sisters gather together for a concert.

These six lovely ladies on fiery fiddles are Annbjørg Lien from Norway who will join Catriona Macdonald from Scotland, Liz Carroll and Liz Knowles from America, Mairead ni Mhaonaigh (Altan) from Ireland and Emma Härdelin from Sweden.

The Sisters will be joined by some of Scotland’s leading instrumentalists: David Milligan on piano, Conrad Ivitsky on double bass, James Mackintosh on drums and from Norway, Tore Bruvoll on guitar.

It will definitely be feet-stomping stuff with this combination!

Don’t miss String Sisters on RWMF main stage and they will be featured at a day-time musical workshop you can attend. It might be a long time before you get to see these lovely ladies perform together in this part of the world again.
