Twin Peaks (above) and Tall Cans play at the Snoring Sasquatch on Aug. 2.

Twin Peaks is the dynamic Fort St. John duo, Naomi Shore and Lindsay Pratt, who are well endowed with musical ability.

Shore began her musical career at nine when she began piano lessons and completed her Grade 9 Royal Conservatory classical training. Fourteen years later, she has established herself as a well-rounded pianist, vocalist and piano teacher.

Pratt has been performing live since the age of 18. She is a former student of Nelson’s Selkirk College, where she attended the Contemporary Music and Technology program. Both have their own individual style and experience, which has lent itself to their unique blend of genres.

Twin Peaks has been described as eclectic folk with undertones of contemporary blues and country influences. Audience members are sure to enjoy their rich harmonies, creative melodies and clever lyricism. With ample wit and vocal talent to spare, these girls put on a show that includes creative covers spanning all genres from Hank Williams Sr. to Foster the People.

They will be joined by guitarist, songwriter and composer Mitch Vinet of Tall Cans. The catalyst that spurred him to begin playing guitar came at a young age after being inspired by his inebriated uncles’ campfire jam sessions at family get-togethers, and the communal power of music is still a driving force behind his playing and writing.

Vinet’s original music tends to lean toward a folk-rock and blues sound, and he is also beginning to compose music for original films, shorts and documentaries.

Twin Peaks and Tall Cans will appear at the Snoring Sasquatch on Aug. 2. Tickets are $10 in advance at Kingfisher Used Books and Black Bear Books and $12 at the door, which opens at 7 p.m.; the show begins at 8.
