The Vogts Sisters’ love for music began in church and at backyard family gatherings listening to old-time cowboy ballads and country tunes, which grew into a genuine admiration for bluegrass, folk, and rural Americana music.
In 2011 the sister duo began singing harmony after taking guitar and piano lessons. They have since added mandolin and fiddle to their collection of instruments. Entering into their third year of entertainment, the young musicians offer graceful performances, blending timeless music with sweet, effortless harmonies. A few of their musical influences include Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch, and the Secret Sisters.
Old Time Noise, their debut album, (Fall 2012) offers a mix of old-timey ballads with a few original songs by Maggie that blend a depth of heartfelt emotion with honest compelling lyrics. They are currently recording their second full album, a collection of original songs, including their award-winning song Ballad of a Love Miscast. All of the tunes on this album will stand up quite well to outside material, highlighting the heart and depth of talent in this artistic duo.
Maggie was named the 2014 Folk Division Winner in the Indie International Songwriting Contest, for her song, Ballad of a Love Miscast.
The Vogts Sisters won grand prize at the 2013 Bluegrass and Chili Festival singing competition in Claremore, OK and have performed in and around Kansas at festivals and events including the Kansas State Fair and the Kansas Sampler Festival.
In 2012, the girls won first place in the folk ensemble competition at the Kansas State Fiddling and Picking Championship in Lawrence, KS, and were invited to perform on the Kids Acoustic Stage at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, KS. They also held two auditorium concerts with Kentucky 31, and Jimmy Fortune/T Graham Brown.
Maggie graduated college in December 2013, and Abigail is a senior in high school. Despite their young age, the girls have a highly developed sense of who they are and what they represent.
