Coggle Sisters release album

Local twin sisters are to launch their debut album with a concert at a village church.

Rosie and Lucy Coggle perform together as The Coggle Sisters and recently supported Barbara Dickson in concert at St James’s Church.

Their album Relics will be launched at a concert at All Saints Church, South Elkington, on June 21.

The sisters grew up near Louth and graduated from the Folk and Traditional Music Degree course at Newcastle University.

They have been working hard recording their debut album.

The Coggle Sisters perform an energetic mix of material which they arrange predominantly for fiddle and ‘cello.

Rosie is a fine fiddler with a unique style taking influence from traditional Irish and Scottish styles and contemporary elements, her playing is lyrical and self assured and she has a gift for possessing a tune and delivering it in her own way.

Lucy plays the ‘cello in a style that is sensitive and driving and her accompaniment is highly rhythmic exploring new boundaries on the cello in traditional music.

Lucy’s rhythmic flare is also carried over on to the bodhran which she plays to a high standard showing sensitivity and skill on the instrument.

Together Rosie and Lucy play a wide range of material including many of their own interpretations of traditional and folk tunes as well as some contemporary and self composed sets. The sisters also sing togethe.

Their new album Relics draws on some of the many sets which show the diversity of sound that the two present in live performances.

Tickets for the concert at South Elkington are available from Off The Beaten Tracks, Aswell Street, Louth, for £5 each.
