The Purple Hulls will return to Alexandria on Sunday, Aug. 15, to perform the banjo versions of old-time gospel songs that have drawn million of views on YouTube.

The musicians, Katy Lou and Penny Lea Clark, are identical twin sisters who took their name from the Texas purple hull pea farm where they were raised. They perform high-energy bluegrass, country and gospel-style music, both original music and covers.

They will perform at 6 p.m. at Alexandria Covenant Church, 4005 Dakota St.

The sisters have worked on their craft in Nashville, writing for Sony and doing session work. They have also toured with the Quebe Sisters, a notable progressive western swing band.

The Purple Hulls tour Europe annually and opened for twice for Grammy-winning country music band Asleep At The Wheel. They have previously performed in Alexandria.
