October 25, 2012
The Shook Twins, (l-r) Kyle Volkman (not a twin), Katelyn Shook and Laurie Shook will be coming home for Thanksgiving, and they'll be playing two local shows, one in Bonners Ferry.
While they're called twins, the Shook Twins are actually a trio, and the actual Shook twins, Sandpoint natives Laurie and Katelyn Shook, are coming home for Thanksgiving, and bringing along the third member of their band, Kyle Volkman.

While here, they'll be performing two shows, one at the Pearl Theater in Bonners Ferry at 7:30 p.m. Friday, November 23, and again at the Panida Theater in Sandpoint at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, November 24.
