BAINBRIDGE — The Shook Twins — Laurie and Katelyn — intertwine harmonies with an eclectic and eccentric blend of folk, roots and pop.

They perform May 25, 8 p.m., in the Treehouse Cafe, 4569 Lynwood Center Road NE, Bainbridge Island. Tickets: $10 advance, $12 at the door. Go to www.tickets.treehousebainbridge.com/ordertickets.asp?p=64 or call (206) 842-2814.

The Shook Twins are not your average folk group. Laurie plays wah-wah banjo and loops various melodies and beats to make it sound like more than just two identical twin sisters. Katelyn plays the guitar, glockenspiel, mandolin, and sings into a telephone and bocks like a chicken.

Rounding out the band are Kyle Volkman (bass), Niko Daoussis (bass, mandolin, guitar),  and Anna Tivel (fiddle).

The Shook Twins’ song "Rose" was featured in NPR's Muse Mix, and an exclusive audio track was debuted on MTV Hive: http://tinyurl.com/7ecokdc. Listen at www.soundcloud.com/shooktwins/sets.
