The Camino Sisters - Celtic Duo

This superb Celtic duo features multi-talented twin sisters and their live show features exquisite vocal harmonies, multi-instrumental dexterity (fiddle, Irish whistles, mandolin and guitar) combining the flavours of Irish and Eastern European music with influences of jazz, pop and contemporary acoustic music.

They have toured in Europe, New Zealand and the UK with a string of festivals as well as television and radio play from Europe to Japan.

The duo are based in Kent but happy to travel for gigs. Being twins, they found themselves singing together from a very early age. It is their singing that, perhaps above all, marks them apart: unique harmony arrangements; intuitive dynamics and an outstanding natural talent for phrasing word and melody, be it contemporary or traditional, is what makes their singing a rare gift. 

Elements of their family roots interweave effortlessly through the material, roots from Eastern Europe and Ireland. As if that wasn't enough, between them they have mastered a wide array of instruments and play outstanding whistle, fiddle, guitar and harp.

The duo have built a loyal following and a reputation for spell-binding performances, playing at prestigious venues including: The Mean Fiddler & Weavers; The Mick Jagger Centre; The Winter Gardens and Trinity Theatre… It is in live performance where they come into their own, with a close-knit attunement to each other and an ability to create a great rapport with their audience aided by good humour and charm, mastery and mischief. Vast experience means they are at ease playing for a wide range of events including: festivals; family parties or celebrity events.

On their musical travels they have received accolades from eminent music legends such as: Herbie Flowers and Mike Scott and been invited to perform their own arrangement of a Laurie Anderson song to an audience including Laurie and Brian Eno.

Their set includes original material and also original arrangements, which put a contemporary spin on songs and tunes from The Waterboys, Michael McGoldrick, Christy Moore, Mary Black, Sinead O’Connor, Alison Krauss, Eric Bogle, Gillian Welch, The Corrs, Richard Thompson, Sandy Denny, and John Doyle (to name but a few).

Additionally, for an even more extensive line-up, Zinta and Ramona regularly perform with a range of high calibre multi-instrumentalists. The ideal combination can be arranged to suit your occasion.
