Teenage singer-songwriter sisters, Linda and Essie Horne are Crested Butte stars and they are BACK to rock at this year’s CBAF! Since Linda’s first performance at the age of eight at a school talent show, she and her guitar have traveled from Cambodia to Savannah, to Las Vegas. The Horne sisters can often be heard in the summer months “busking” on Elk Avenue.
The two have performed in the Opera Children’s Chorus because it is something “you never really have the opportunity to do” in Crested Butte. They perform duets in the opera, covers, and original music in their delicate and very natural harmony. Linda wants to be a “really good traveling performer,” and was the youngest and only female guitarist at the Frank Vignola Guitar Camp. She described the other musicians as “really nice, really advanced, and very encouraging,” and is excited for 2018. Of her future, Linda says, “I just want to go for my dreams with nothing in the way.”
