The Church Sisters
The Church Sisters • The Mast Farm Inn is honored to be one of the official sponsors of The Church Sisters. "I’ve had the pleasure of working with so many great singers in my career. I can honestly say Savannah & Sarah, The Church Sisters, are as good as it gets. I’m not talking about being "good for their age" either… 14 years old, by the way… I’m talking about being GREAT singers for any age and compared to anyone. God has blessed these young ladies with so much talent, it’s almost unbelievable… and you will be just as blessed to hear them… trust me." ~ Carl Jackson
The Church Sisters, Sarah and Savannah Church, were born on December 11, 1995 in the coal mining area of Dickenson County, Virginia. After residing in Haysi, Virginia for a short while, they returned to Danville, Virginia, hometown of their mother, Stephanie. They began their musical career in March of 2007 after winning a local talent competition, WAKG Rising Stars.
"The phone began ringing off the hook with requests for them to appear at various places including churches, theaters and festivals."
The Church Sisters’ brother, Seth Church, an award-winning guitarist, also performs alongside them playing lead guitar. Since winning the competition, they have been busy traveling the United States and hope to tour Europe someday. The pair have met and performed with prestigious names such as Rhonda Vincent, The Isaacs, Carl Jackson, Larry Cordle, Jerry Salley, and Tony Rice.
Most recently, Barry Waldrep, who has toured with various artists such as Zac Brown and Joey and Rory, has taken an interest in the girls. Plans for upcoming shows with Barry Waldrep have already been scheduled.
The girls released their first album titled "Farther Along" and are currently working on their second release "There’s You" due out in July 2012. The second album will feature mandolin virtuoso, Adam Steffey, whom the girls are proud to call friend. The album is being recorded by Josh Pickett at Pickett Recording Studio who has also contributed guitar and bass tracks for the album. The fiddle player for Martina McBride, Jenee Fleenor, adds a melodic fiddle to complete the wonderful sound this album will entail. Josh Pickett is the girls’ cousin and is currently touring with The Church Sisters, Larry Cordle and Lonesome Standard Time and The No Speed Limit Band.
The pair’s most recent venture was included on a stellar album produced by Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter and producer, Carl Jackson. The album, named "Mark Twain Words and Music", includes renowned Nashville recording artists & actors such as Brad Paisley, Sheryl Crow, Clint Eastwood, Vince Gill, Marty Raybon, Garrison Keillor, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Rhonda Vincent, Bradley Walker, Emmylou Harris, Angela Lovell, Val Storey, Joe Diffie, Ricky Skaggs, Carl Jackson and Jimmy Buffett. "Mark Twain Words and Music" was released on Jimmy Buffett‘s label, Mailboat Records. Mark Twain: Words & Music combines spoken word and music to tell the life story of Samuel Langhorne Clemens. It was created to commemorate 2010 – The Year of Mark Twain.
Savannah Church, the lead vocalist and fiddler of the group was born on December 11, 1995. With no formal vocal training, Savannah attributes her vocal ability to God. Born a twin in Norton Virginia, she later moved to the coal mining area of Dickenson County where she and her family lived a short time before later settling in Danville, Virginia, hometown of her mother, Stephanie Church Duncan. Savannah has worked very hard to use the abilities that God gave her in a way most admired by many. Sarah Church, often mistaken for the "little" sister due to her stature, is in fact the twin sister of Savannah Church. For more than three years, she has sung alongside her sister and added the most beautiful angelic harmony often spoken of as “blood harmony”. The Church Sisters Band is composed of Savannah Church, Sarah Church, Jay Duncan, Seth Church, Carroll Arnn & Josh Pickett
