Originally formed as an offshoot of all-star swing combo the Loveboat Big Band, the Bevvys simultaneously channel the heritage of such classic sister-acts as the Beverleys, the Andrews and the Boswells, while their own diverse backgrounds and collective songwriting skills reinvent the female trio formula.
Debut album St James Sessions, launched with a sold-out show at Glasgow’s world-famous Celtic Connections festival in 2010, won glowing reviews and UK-wide airplay, while captivating live shows continue to extend their fan-base.
Besides headline appearances including Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Belgium’s Schots Weekend, the Big Tent Festival and Orkney Folk Festival, they’ve collaborated with English folk star Eliza Carthy, Scottish super-trio Lau, and in an international project involving iconic fiddler and singer Dave Swarbrick, Canadian reggae artist Jason Wilson and Scotland’s legendary Dick Gaughan.
‘Their banter with the audience is a joy to behold and would be the envy of most top-class comedians..’
The uncanny musical empathy and alchemy that’s always been The Bevvy Sisters’ trademark, stamping their identity on everything from golden Americana oldies to soulful self-penned ballads, resounds with renewed vitality through this fresh ensemble dynamic.
