The current lineup is Heather Macleod, Gina Rae and Louise Murphy - with fellow Bevvy 'Sister' David Donnelly on guitar. Click here to read more about each of these four amazing musicians.
Over their ten years 'The Bevvys' have become a recognised house for great singers and songwriters and have over that time featured six lead vocalists, formerly Lindsey Black, Kaela Rowan, Roberta Pia and Cera Impala, each with their own notable style and, crucially, the ability to move across different styles with ease - The Bevvy's trademark.
As life moves on, The Bevvy Sisters move with it, incorporating each new voice to create a new and special blend, whilst still retaining their recognisable voice.
Their recent album release 'This Moment' really is a thing of beauty - and was recorded here in Seahouses, so this will be something of a special 'homecoming' for them!
If the sweetness of the sound ever fools you into thinking you're listening to a reincarnated Andrews Sisters, then a few seconds later there will be a counterpunch that reminds that there's much more to this band than sweetness, whether that be vocal fireworks, that awesome bass voice or just something daft.

They were awarded 'BBC Best of the Fest for their slot on TV special coverage at Edinburgh Fringe.
The uncanny musical empathy and alchemy that’s always been The Bevvy Sisters’ trademark, stamping their identity on everything from golden oldies to soulful self-penned ballads, never fails to resound with renewed vitality.
You can be a part of this gig!
The Bevvy's are also experts in organising and leading choirs, of all shapes, sizes and genres. They love to give 'ordinary' singers a voice, and a chance to sing with the pros. And we will have that opportunity at this gig! In the afternoon of gig-day, there will be a workshop here in the house, where we'll learn and practise a few songs under their expert leading. Then we'll sing with them as part of their gig. How cool is that?! (The'll also make audio files available for us to 'get familiar' with the songs in advance too.)
Heather, Gina and Lou have emphasised that we don't need to consider ourselves 'good singers' to take part in this - they say it is an experience guaranteed to send a tingle down our collective spine, as we sing out with new confidence! Can't wait...
The workshop will run 2.30pm-4.30pm, then there'll be opportunity to wander off to get something to eat, before returning for the gig at 7pm.
Tickets for the gig-only are £12.50, and for the workshop plus gig are £25. Give us a call to get your name on the list!
