Kitty, Daisy & Lewis

Sibling band Kitty, Daisy & Lewis play 40's/50's rockabilly and swing, country and western, Hawaiian and rock 'n' roll with a skill and energy that connects them to the past and ensures they'll be around in the future. Between them, the trio play guitar, piano, banjo, lapsteel guitar, harmonica, double bass, ukulele, trombone and accordion, swapping instruments between songs at their super-energetic live shows. The live shows started out as just Kitty, Daisy and Lewis performing with various guitar players providing a rhythm. After a while, they felt it worked best playing with their dad (Graeme) on acoustic guitar and their mum (Ingrid) on double bass.

'We play old music but we're playing it now,' says Lewis. For them, it's heroes like Louis Jordan, Louis Prima, Johnny Cash, Wynonie 'Mr Blues' Harris and Roy Brown who are on iPod rotation.
