Augusta Ramble at Harmonie Verein continues its monthly concerts on Saturday November 9, 7-10pm, with a presentation of The Burney Sisters from Columbia, MO. Olivia and Emma Burney are a dynamic sister duo with an indie folk/pop sound.
The sisters started singing around the house when they were barely able to walk. With some vocal coaching from their mom, they began harmonizing well before they picked up instruments. Olivia found her first love in the ukulele after finding one at a garage sale for a dollar. After a few online tutorials, she was well on her way to being the performer and teacher she is today.
Not to be outdone by her older sister, Emma picked up the guitar at the age of 9, and began learning songs of her own. Now, she helps Olivia with all of the arrangements and harmonies and has since expanded her instrumental arsenal to include bass, banjo, keys, fiddle, and cello.
