THE CANOTE TWINS, a film by Larry Edelman, is the story of Greg and Jere Canote, identical twins who have been playing music together for most of their 70-plus years. And not just any old music, but simply amazing, genetically-matched singing and musicianship. They quickly bring to mind the rich tradition of singing brother duets, evoking such seminal duos as the Blue Sky Boys, the Delmore Brothers, and the Everly Brothers. And they take it up a notch, because they’re not merely brothers, but identical twins. And as one reviewer observed, “They’re really ‘twinny’ twins.” Their delightful repertoire spans Americana and includes early country music, quirky novelty songs, swing classics, and rare fiddle tunes, all uniquely interpreted through their positive world view. They’ve shared their music for more than half a century, teaching and performing at countless festivals and workshops, and on radio and television. But their exceptional music is only part of the story. Greg and Jere have another unique characteristic – they are two of the happiest people you will ever meet. And their happiness is downright contagious. When people find themselves in close proximity to the twins, they also find themselves feeling more joyful. This documentary spans their lifetime, right up to the present day. You’ll appreciate their musical inspirations and tap into the secrets of their happiness. Singlers will better understand the mystical closeness of identical twins. And after it’s over, you’ll feel a little more joyful, a bit happier. And can’t we all use a little bit more of that? 

Voted Audience Favorite Feature Documentary at the West Sound Film Festival!
