Folk duo Chris and Meredith Thompson in Bristol

Posted

Chris & Meredith Thompson are powerful performers with a natural warmth for the live concert stage. Best known for the unique blend of their nearly identical voices, the Thompsons weave vocals, flute, guitar and percussion together creating a sound that is genuine, beautiful, and moving. These identical twin sisters played in their first show in 1992, and have since played in venues across the US and released six albums. Chris plays percussive, riff driven guitar, while Meredith plays authentic Latin rhythms on congas and adds flute to their sound. Both sisters sing in close harmony, both earthy and ethereal. The Thompsons link music and stories together to create an engaging, animated performance rich in texture, mood and character.
