About this Act

Camine are twin sisters Ramona and Zinta Egle. Their music originates from Ireland, Scotland and beyond and moves imaginatively from high energy jigs and reels to sublime harmony singing.

On their musical travels they have received accolades from eminent music legends such as Herbie Flowers and Mike Scott and have performed their own arrangement of a Laurie Anderson song to an audience including Laurie and Brian Eno.

Camine have toured in Europe, New Zealand and the UK. They have performed at a string of festivals and had television and radio play from Europe to Japan. Being experienced entertainers, their broad repertoire ranges from traditional through to contemporary songs. Romantic, passionate and exciting, Camine are the perfect choice for any event. Their live show features exquisite vocal harmonies, multi-instrumental dexterity (fiddle, Irish whistles, mandolin and guitar) combining the flavours of Irish and Eastern European music with influences from jazz, pop and contemporary acoustic music.

Their set includes original material and also original arrangements, which put a contemporary spin on songs and tunes from The Waterboys, Michael McGoldrick, Christy Moore, Mary Black, Sinead O’Connor, Alison Krauss, Eric Bogle, Gillian Welch, The Corrs, Richard Thompson, Sandy Denny, and John Doyle (to name but a few).

Zinta and Ramona, now living in Kent, were born and raised in East Yorkshire. Being twins, they found themselves singing together from a very early age. It is their singing that, perhaps above all, marks them apart: unique harmony arrangements; intuitive dynamics and an outstanding natural talent for phrasing word and melody, be it contemporary or traditional, is what makes Ramona and Zinta's singing a rare gift. Elements of their family roots interweave effortlessly through the material, roots from Eastern Europe and Ireland. As if that wasn't enough, between them they have mastered a wide array of instruments and play outstanding whistle, fiddle, guitar and harp.

Camine have built a loyal following and a reputation for spell-binding performances, playing at prestigious venues including: The Mean Fiddler & Weavers; The Mick Jagger Centre; The Winter Gardens and Trinity Theatre… It is in live performance where Camine come into their own, with a close-knit attunement to each other and an ability to create a great rapport with their audience aided by good humour and charm, mastery and mischief. Vast experience means Camine are at ease playing for a wide range of events including: festivals; family parties or celebrity events.

Additionally, for an even more extensive line-up, Zinta and Ramona regularly perform with a range of high calibre multi-instrumentalists meaning an ideal combination can be arranged to suit your occasion.
