The Beggs Sisters are Willow Beggs Ukulele, Guitar and Voice.
Lula Beggs Ukulele, Guitar and Voice. Nick Beggs Double Bass and Voice.

Willow and Lula were encouraged from an early age to follow their own musical paths by their musician father Nick Beggs, who initially found fame in the 80s with the band Kajagoogoo.
His later work with Steve Hackett and Steven Wilson enabled him to escape the 80s pop moniker picking up various awards and accolades along the way. Still part of the Steven Wilson Band and various other touring artists like Howard Jones, Beggs embraces a wide variety of genres refusing to be pigeonholed.

Although Willow and Lula have been studying for their degrees in art and psycho-dynamic counselling they are eager to play live and perform the myriad songs they have written over the years. With a wide gamut of influences they draw inspiration from life experiences, touching on diverse subjects such as depression, ecology and relationships.

In September 2022 the trio were guests of Marillion at the Brighton Dome were their close harmonies and beautiful songs wowed a new audience. “Folk music seems to be at the heart of what we’re doing, but we had discussed how we might find a way to play our songs together and tell stories about our lives. This format seems to be the most natural way.”

2023 saw the trio continuing to perform live around the country gathering new fans for their unique style of melodic folk. To promote the release of their debut EP Sleep with the Ghost The Beggs Sisters will be appearing at Dingwalls on Dec 1st.
