About this Act

Union Avenue are a rarity on the live music scene - they are an all female acoustic duo. Tara and Ruthie both have a wealth of performing experience and decided to combine their talents to form a contemporary music duo.

As Union Avenue they perform a wide range of popular cover songs in their own stripped back style using close vocal harmonies against a backdrop of acoustic guitar, their sound is unmistakable. They can deliver anything from a heartfelt wedding ballad to a crowd pleasing rock anthem and everything in between.
