Christine Lavin is unable to attend the 2014 Turtle Hill Folk Festival
as planned, according to her agent, David Tamulevich. Christine was
unavailable for comment at the time of this publication but David said
she is extremely disappointed and would be with us if it were possible.
Consequently, we have contracted with The Burns Sisters (Annie and
Marie), old friends of ours, who have toured with Arlo Guthrie and are
interrupting their new CD recording session in Nashville to join us.
Please help us extend a warm welcome to these unique and talented
songwriters whose beautiful sibling harmonies have been seasoned with a
lifetime of practice.
