LOGAN — The Vogt Sisters will perform a concert at the annual Hansen Arts and Crafts Fair. The concerts will be at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday at the north stage.
Touring the Midwest since May 2012, the Vogts Sisters have gained widespread recognition for their vocals and sisterly harmonies, taking their music wherever they can to include stages at festivals, auditoriums, theaters and coffee houses.
The Vogts Sisters just returned from their second Colorado Music Tour and are now traveling to north-central Kansas and Nebraska for an Eclipse Music Weekend.
Garnering numerous awards in regional and international songwriting competitions, the sister duo has more than 30 original songs that fit into their acoustic Americana-Folk act. A few of their musical influences include Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris and Gillian Welch, but the two often surprise audiences with covers from Johnny Horton, U2 or Fleetwood Mac.
The Vogts Sisters have three albums available for sale. "Homeward" (June 2016) and "My Own Dixie" (March 2015) have all original songs and have achieved high-ranking reviews and radio airplay on a regional and international level. Their debut album, "Old Time Noise," released in 2012.
Maggie, 26, plays the fiddle and guitar and graduated college in December 2013, while Abigail, 21, plays the mandolin and guitar and attends Pittsburg State University. They make their home in rural Erie.
