Touring the Midwest since May 2012, the Vogts Sisters touch the hearts of audiences everywhere they go. The young musicians have gained widespread recognition for their haunting vocals and tight sisterly harmonies, taking their music wherever they can to include stages at festivals, auditoriums, theaters, and more than a few coffee houses.
The Vogts Sisters have garnered numerous awards in regional and international songwriting competitions, including their latest win at the 2017 Walnut Valley Festival’s New Song Showcase. With over thirty original songs that fit seamlessly into their acoustic Americana-Folk act, the girls blend timeless music with sweet sister harmony. A few of their musical influences include Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, and Gillian Welch, but they often surprise audiences with covers from Johnny Horton, U2, or Fleetwood Mac.
Broken Ties, their fourth album, released May 2018, highlighting ten original songs, which explore the range and dynamics of the Vogts Sisters maturing harmonies and instrumentation on mandolin, fiddle, and guitar. Other album titles include Homeward (2016), My Own Dixie (2015), and Old Time Noise (2012).
Maggie (age 27) plays the fiddle and guitar and graduated college in December 2013, while Abigail (age 22) plays the mandolin and guitar and attends a local university. They make their home in rural Kansas. Praised for their graceful, authentic, yet vulnerable performances where one hears the real deal, the Vogts Sisters remain humble, possessing a highly developed sense of who they are and what they represent.
