Music

Forged in the murky depths of a Folly Beach holding cell, The Ain’t Sisters have transcended their origins as outlaw street performers to grace the stages of the Southeast with their unique brand of funk-infused, blues-driven Americana.

The duo, composed of Arrie Bozeman and Barb Carbon, blends tight harmonies and smart lyrics with soulful, booty-shakin’ acoustic melodies. Both dynamic musicians and songwriters, they share an equal propensity for irony, humor, ferocity, and heart-on-sleeve authenticity.
