Chris &Meredith Thompson (The Kennedy Center)

Chris &Meredith Thompson

Growing up down the street from the Stone Soup Coffeehouse in Providence, RI, identical twin sisters Chris and Meredith Thompson played their first show there in 1992. Since then they have maintained an active tour schedule and have released five albums, their most recent, “Clearwater,” released in June, 2002. Chris Thompson plays percussive, riff driven guitar, while Meredith Thompson plays authentic Latin rhythms on congas and adds flute to their sound. First place winners of the OSBC Band Contest in May, 2000 in Cambridge, MA, the twins were nominated for “RI’s Best Folk Act” in 1998, and were finalists in the Lilith Fair Talent Search for New York City in May, 1998, and in the January 2003 Florida Folk Fest Songwriting Contest. They have performed at a variety of venues: colleges throughout the Northeast; clubs such as Nashville’s Bluebird Café, New York’s Bitter End, Atlanta’s Eddie’s Attic, Chicago’s Heartland Café; and numerous festivals.
