TwinSister, 2014 "Best Rock Band" Winners in The Indie Music Channel Awards, is a 4 piece Classic Rock & Southern Rock Tribute Show Band from PA who can play flawless Originals & timeless Classics..... A polished, professional act with lots of showmanship! This is a multitalented identical act with not one, but two female vocalists who play not one, but several different instruments.
LINDA HOLT- vocals, fretless bass, 12-string guitar, keyboards, mandolin, banjo, harmonica, recorder, hammered & mountain dulcimers
EMILY HOLT- vocals, keyboards, flute, fretless bass, violin, recorder, guitar, viola, sax
RICH ARTECA- lead and rhythm guitar, bass

The Holt Twins harmonize and blend voices in a beauty and a closeness attainable
when you are fortunate enough to enter the world identically! Senses bridge between two individuals to form one. Combine this with a talent to sing, compose, and play a variety of instruments, and you learn the meaning of harmony. Originally from Sinking Spring, PA, this unique act started performing when just teenagers and quickly became the most requested act in Berks County so much so that even 15 years into their performances they were requested to be the main act at Reading's Best Fest. As a duo they play the best in folk music- both contemporary and traditional and when there are kids around, they get them involved with rhythm instruments. Their performances are too many to name, but here are a few- Bethlehem Musik Fest, Haycreek Fall Festival, Pocono Mt. Jamborees, Hershey Park, Knoebels Park, Schuylkill Haven Borough Days, & University of Wisconsin.
Joining them for TwinSister are 2 talented musicians-
Rich Arteca, from Long Island, NY, has been with TWINSISTER since 1977 and has co-written some of their songs.
Jimmy Reed makes the band complete with his showmanship & expertise in drumming. He comes with much experience including being in a band that toured with Cinderella and Poison back in the '80's.
TwinSister with it's special brand of "Twin Rock" has entertained fans on the east coast in Rock and Roll Clubs, Teen Clubs, Campgrounds, Festivals, Universities, the major shore points of New Jersey, and throughout the Midwest. Their show is both Professional AND Entertaining. They have a great mix of classic rock & southern rock tunes, lots of instrumentation other bands do not have, both female and male vocalists & musicians....They Look Good, They Sound Great, and They Rock!....If needed, they also have their own pa system and light show.
