Unity Hall’s next live performance takes place on Saturday, November 20 when the national touring duo, The Burns Sisters, light up the historic stage with their tight harmonies and uplifting Celtic-infused music. Known for their pure harmonies and beautiful lyrics, The Burns Sisters’ transcendent tunes are filled with warmth and conviction. The concert begins at 8pm upstairs on the main stage at Unity Hall,101 Vanderkemp Ave, Barneveld.


Two of twelve siblings, Annie and Marie Burns have been singing together since early childhood. The Burns Sisters have been through many different configurations over the years. They started as a trio. At one time, all five sisters sang together, but they eventually returned to the original trio. Two years ago, Jeannie Burns left the band to follow her heart westward to the Austin music scene. Now based in Ithaca, NY Marie and Annie have kept the name and reputation of The Burns Sisters alive, performing in major venues and festivals in the United States, as well as in Ireland where they have been repeatedly invited to play established music festivals. The two have written and produced together and apart approximately 20 CDs.


The Burns Sisters have shared the stage with many great folk legends, including Arlo Guthie, Tom Paxton, Pete Seeger, Odetta, Jimmy Lafave, David Amram, Radoslav Lorkovic, Chris Thile, Fred Eaglesmith, Willie Nelson, Sarah Lee and Johnny Irions, Folk Uke, and even the Boston Pops. They have played venues from Carnegie Hall to the Grand Old Opry, and from hills of Northern Thailand to the hills of Clare Ireland. They have graced many a track with their beautiful backup harmonies, on projects too numerous to mention. The sisters are mainstays at The Woody Guthrie Folk Fest in Okemah Oklahoma.


Annie and Marie have both had their songs featured on television including ‘ER’ and ‘Holiday High school Reunion’
