Annie and Marie Burns as a duo create uplifting, transcendent music filled with warmth and conviction. Stirring and reverent, their passionate, seductive harmonies and lyrics are bursting with spirit and soul.
 The Burns Sisters are renowned for their pure harmony, beautiful lyrics and joyful energy and will celebrate in early 2015 with a new album "Looking Back, Our American Irish Souls"

The Burns Sisters have been through many different configurations over the years. They started as a trio. At one time, all five sisters sang together, but they returned to the original trio. Two years ago, Jeannie Burns left the band to follow her heart westward to the Austin music scene.
Marie and Annie followed their hearts to Ireland where they played established music festivals in the West of Ireland. There, they started to look into their own family history, and to learn the true Irish history of the famine and the great migration. The Sisters were compelled and inspired to write and record their new project "Looking Back, Our American Irish Souls"
The album is gathering attention in Ireland, Wales, UK, Scotland, Canada and here in the USA. It is a "Celtic infused Americana" project and will be on general release in January 2015.

" Looking Back Our American Irish Souls, I think it a truly magnificent, quite superb piece of work. Your beautiful voices blend so perfectly, the vocal performances and the playing throughout is perfect too...and so have injected new life onto some old classics (From Clare To Here, Ned Of The Hill, Free-Born Man, and Too Ra Loo are just excellent versions...and even the sometimes-abused Danny Boy is treated with grace and feeling giving it the dignity it deserves.), and your take on Kilkelly is by far the best version I’ve yet heard. I believe "Workhouse" - given the theme - should be heard by EVERYBODY on this island NOW.... The engineering/ production is as good as it gets."

"A prevailing sense of physical place and ancestral lineage steer this worthy project on a steady course. Couple that with tight-as-a-drum, harmony singing and stellar musicianship to discover
an album of dignified beauty. Masters of their art do simple things well and on Looking Back, Annie and Marie Burns do that in abundance.”
