"Hearts of Kin were an instant hit with their first performance at Acoustic Roots 2021. They performed a solid set resulting in an immediate invitation to return and perform at next year's festival. We look forward to having Hearts of Kin take the stage as part of the Acoustic Roots 2022 lineup."

"Cape Breton folk/country duo Hearts of Kin really impress with their first single "Throw Away World" from their debut EP, "Homegrown". The Sydney based act consisting of sisters Shellie Tobin and Danielle MacDonald showcase tight family harmonies with tasteful arrangements and production. The debut single was an instant add, quickly moving into heavy rotation here at The Coast 89.7. We look forward to hearing more from this promising new East Coast duo".
