Shook Twins 

Saturday, Oct. 17, Neurolux


Laurie Shook, of Portland, Ore.-based folk band Shook Twins, discovered the giant golden egg on June 10, 2010 in Seattle. The story goes, Laurie saw a young man leaning against a wall with a beach ball-sized egg under his arm. He said some lady gave it to him, told him to sign it and pass it to the next person. He passed it to Laurie, who was immediately taken by it. She poured popcorn kernels into it, turning the egg into a giant shaker. Then she played it like a drum.

The tale of the egg is every bit as charming as the Shooks themselves. Identical twins, Laurie and Katelyn, hail from Sandpoint, Idaho, and are warmly welcomed when they play anywhere in their home state. Their upbeat, eccentric folk incorporates banjo, electric and acoustic guitars, electric and upright bass, mandolin, beatboxing, glockenspiel and ukulele underpinning a harmony so perfect it could only come from identical twins.
