Gillian and Robert Thomson of the indie pop/singer-songwriter act Sister Says will be at the Folk Alliance International conference, which runs from Jan. 22 to 26 in the Louisiana city.

The pair, who are of mixed Haida-Tsimshian and European descent, will entertain during a private showcase, in which hotel rooms are converted into listening rooms for unplugged shows.

Sister Says has played at various Canadian festivals since the duo graduated from Terry Fox secondary and have travelled to China to perform at the BC Pavilion in Beijing. It also opened for Stars and Blackie and the Rodeo Kings in Toronto’s Nathan Phillips Square for Unifest 2013.
