Saturday’s show at Barking Legs is sibling songfest
Is listening to more live music one of your New Year’s resolutions? Then head to Barking Legs this Saturday. Sister duo Fritsl and Teni Butler kick off the first weekend of 2015 in a reunion concert with Jim Palmour, Bob Burns, Ethen Martin (of Barefoot Productions) and more at 8 p.m.
The Butler sisters’ musical style is described as “an eclectic mix of original work, influenced by the earliest writing they encountered, as well as by contemporary pop music.”
Even though distance separates the two, the singer-songwriters have both continued to hone their craft through performances, and by attending local writers’ nights.
When not performing with each other, Fritsl can be seen performing with her band in Sewanee and Teni attending college in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and performing as a solo act.
They often play select covers, but the two are mainly known for their original work. The lyrics that both Fritsl and Teni write are said to be stories of complex characters with experiences their listeners can relate to.
