THE VOGTS SISTERS
This is a really nice project from sisters Abigail (guitar, mandolin, vocals) and Maggie (guitar, fiddle, vocals). The album of original material is produced simply with just the two ladies playing instruments and swapping lead and harmony vocals.
Maggie composed most of the tunes and Abigail contributed one (“Sorry Side”). Maggie’s songs include “Jericho,” “Dreaming Ways,” “Prove Me Wrong,” “Dixie Bride,” “Rosanna,” “In The Valley,” and “Antietam.” The songs reflect a period of growth the pair has experienced in the past few years since their previous recording. That growth includes joy, sorrow, loss of love, loss of home, and loss of innocence, but also includes a gain in experience and maturity from those circumstances and how they adjusted to life’s changes.
The interplay between the sisters makes this an easy CD to listen to, both vocally and instrumentally with uncluttered two- or three-instrument arrangements. The Vogts Sisters have produced a nice effort with good songs and a simple approach to the music. (Vogts Sisters, P.O. Box 232, Erie, KS 66733, www.vogtssisters.com.)BF
