Question: What does Jonny Lang, Lynn Anderson, Peggy Lee, Wiz Khalifa and Tigirlily have in common? Answer: all are natives of North Dakota.
But before there was a Country music-duo named Tigirlily (pronounced Tie-Girl-Lilly), it was simply Kendra and Krista Slaubaugh; sisters, 2 1⁄2 years apart. The two sisters grew up in a home where singing was encouraged. The two girls learned early how to harmonize with each other. Taking a cue from a few of their musical influences – The Chicks, Sugarland, Rascal Flatts – Kendra and Krista effortlessly blend their voices to create rich and robust harmonies.
In 2013, at the ages of 16 (Kendra) and 14 (Krista), the two sisters made the decision to pursue singing, songwriting and performing full time. With that Tigirlily, the band taking its name from the ‘Tiger Lily’ flower that grew in the garden of the girls’ childhood home, was now born.
While Tigirlily was touring the Midwest throughout the mid-2010s, they were also embracing online platforms like YouTube, performing and posting their songs, showcasing their talent, and connecting with their ever-growing fanbase in a different way. After three years crisscrossing the Dakota’s, Montana, and Minnesota, in 2017 Tigirlily relocated from North Dakota to their new home of Nashville, TN. The band quickly landed a weekly residence performing at Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row where they would see their fans, who were not residents of Nashville, showing up to see the duo perform live.
Ticket pricing will range from $69-$99. Nordic Night passes are available to see all four 8pm Great Hall shows. Tickets can be found at hostfest.com.
