Chris & Meredith Thompson are powerful performers with a natural warmth for the live concert stage. Best known for the unique blend of their nearly identical voices, the Thompsons weave vocals, flute, guitar and percussion together creating a sound that is genuine, beautiful, and moving. These identical twin sisters grew up down the street from Stone Soup Coffeehouse in Providence. They played their first show at Stone Soup in 1992, and have since played in venues across the U.S. and released six albums. Chris plays percussive, riff-driven guitar. Meredith plays authentic Latin rhythms on congas and adds flute to their sound. Both sisters sing in close harmony both earthy and ethereal. The Thompsons tell stories that resonate with the audience, stories that celebrate common experience. With the release of their sixth CD, “Live," Chris & Meredith Thompson showcase their vocal range on songs influenced by traditional spirituals, achieving harmonies known uniquely to siblings. This will be their Blackstone River Theatre debut!
