    The Cornshed Sisters are Jennie, Cath, Liz and Marie. Less alike than these four peas you have never seen in the same pod. If they were raised as sisters it was by a Father who sang like an angel and by a Mother who loved the devil’s music. Guitar pop, folk tales, protest songs, country music, piano ballads and gospel must have all gone into the same soup from which these women supped.

    Although unified in their musical tastes, as songwriters and interpreters The Cornshed Sisters display a healthy disregard for unity of subject matter (reminiscent perhaps of Randy Newman, Joni Mitchell or Richard and Linda Thompson). In these songs the ladies tackle water babies, beekeeping, marriage, soothsayers, men in sequined suits, making pies out of people and the axis of love and bombs. And, there’s some unusual stuff too.

    Drawing on a palette of vocals and assorted acoustic instruments they convey these ideas with sensitivity and humour. Their four distinctive yet sympathetic voices range far and wide, recalling the emotive tangles of The Band as often as the choral elegance of The Roches.
