Vogts Sisters in concert

A duet with a unique blend of Americana, folk, and a touch of bluegrass is coming to the Flint Hills for a concert at Pioneer Bluffs.

At 1:30 p.m. Saturday, November 3, the Vogts Sisters will perform in the loft of the 1915 barn at Pioneer Bluffs.

Often compared to songbirds or musical angels, the Vogts Sisters of Erie, Kansas, touch the hearts of audiences everywhere they go. The music of Abigail and Maggie Vogts has been called “Enchanting. Captivating. Delightful.” by the Daily Country.

This year the Vogts Sisters released their fourth album of all-original music, Broken Ties. It is a vulnerable look at loss and life and how closely both are intertwined. “Loss of home, love, youth and innocence. Loss in the wake of war. Loss if you move along, loss if you remain,” said Maggie Vogts. “And, scariest of all, realizing that as long as we are living and breathing and wanting something out of this life, we will awaken each day to repercussions of human action and inaction, earth-shaking and minute alike.”

“Broken Ties is more than the voices. It is the light touch on the instrument, the phrasing, the lyrics, and the songwriting.” Frank Gutch, Jr. reviewer for Indiemusicology

Touring throughout the year in the Midwest, the Vogts Sisters have garnered numerous awards in regional and international songwriting competitions and have over thirty original songs that fit seamlessly into their acoustic Americana-Folk act, blending timeless music with sweet sister harmony.

A $10 donation is suggested for this concert. For details, contact Lynn Smith, executive director, at (620) 753-3484 or lynn@pioneerbluffs.org.

The Vogts Sisters’ albums will be available for purchase before and after the concert.
