The Vogts Sisters
"Maybe one of the best under-the-radar acts in the roots/string/grass genre' today..." - Americana Rhythm Magazine, March 2017
Touring the Midwest since May 2012, the Vogts Sisters touch the hearts of audiences everywhere they go. The young emerging artists have gained widespread recognition for their haunting vocals and tight sisterly harmonies, taking their music wherever they can to include stages at festivals, auditoriums, theaters, and even a few coffee houses.
The Vogts Sisters have garnered numerous awards in regional and international songwriting competitions, including their latest win at the 2016 Walnut Valley Festival’s New Song Showcase. The girls have over twenty-four original songs that fit seamlessly into their acoustic Americana-Folk act, blending timeless music with sweet sister harmony. A few of their musical influences include Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, and Gillian Welch, but they often surprise audiences with covers from Johnny Horton, U2, or Fleetwood Mac.
The Vogts Sisters released their first co-produced album, Homeward, (June 2016) as a humble attempt to truly define who they are as artists and musicians. My Own Dixie (March 2015), has achieved high-ranking reviews and radio airplay on a regional and international level, calling attention to their haunting vocals and lyrical depth and maturity. Their debut album, Old Time Noise, released in 2012.
Maggie (age 26) plays the fiddle and guitar and graduated college in December 2013, while Abigail (age 20) plays the mandolin and guitar and attends a local junior college. They make their home in rural Erie, Kansas. Praised for their graceful, authentic, yet vulnerable performances where one hears the real deal, the Vogts Sisters remain humble, possessing a highly developed sense of who they are and what they represent.
