Support the arts in Pueblo! Join us for a winter concert featuring the Shook Twins on February 7 at 7:30 p.m. This fundraising event will be hosted by the Pueblo Arts Alliance in partnership with Songbird Cellars. The two hour concert will showcase the group Shook Twins (based in Portland). Alongside the music, there will be a silent auction and art exhibition of locally made artwork available for sale. A food truck will be parked on the street and a full bar will be available inside the venue.
Born and raised in Sandpoint Idaho, Shook Twins are an Indie folk-pop band hailing from Portland, Oregon. Identical twins Katelyn and Laurie are the main songwriters, but they also back up their band member Niko Slice (electric guitar, mandolin and vocals) adding his uniquely compelling songs to the mix. Barra Brown is on Drums, vocals and Drum Pad, and Josh Simon is on Bass, vocals, Electric guitar, and synth. Central to Shook Twins’ sound is their wide range of instrumentation: banjo, acoustic and electric guitars, electric bass, mandolin, electronic drums, face drum (beat-box), glockenspiel, ukulele, banjo-head drumming and their signature Golden Egg. Beautiful twin harmonies, layered upon acoustic and electric instrumentation, coupled with Laurie’s inventive use of percussive and ambient vocal loops, and Katelyn’s re-purposed telephone microphone, set their sound apart, creating a unique and eccentric blend of folk, roots, groove and soul. Spanning the spectrum from distinctive and genuine to amusing and whimsical, Shook Twins’ laid-back and fun stage presence draws the listener in, allowing them to take the audience on an adventure.

About the venue:
The historic Olde Towne Carriage House was built in 1893. In its former life, it served as a blacksmith shop and then as storage for some of the finest carriages, road wagons and victorias in all of Colorado and the southwest. Today, the upper floor is a beautiful, modern meeting and reception hall that overlooks the majestic Pueblo Riverwalk.
