Chapin-Wickwar first played at TwickFolk 11 months ago. After supporting Morrigan in late June they returned in October for a feature spot on a singers’ night. This June we welcome Lisa and Sue back for a full concert and the launch of their new album, “No Heaven . . .” We heard a couple of the new songs in October and they were excellent. Their performance will put you in mind of Janis Ian and Suzanne Vega, both in terms of voices and song-writing ability.

Sue and Lisa met in 2013 and have been singing together ever since. Their début album ‘If…‘ was nominated for the FolkWords 2015 Album Awards for ‘Best Album from a Duo’ (“Lisa and Sue Chapin-Wickwar have with ‘If…’ created something that’s so close to gorgeous the result is exquisite” – Tim Carroll, FolkWords).

The video above was recorded at Florence Mine Arts Centre in 2015. Here, now is a song from the upcoming album to whet your appetite:
