Secret Sisters' Laura and Lydia Rogers perform at the 2011 Newport Folk Festival.

Shantel Mitchell for NPR

Secret Sisters' Laura and Lydia Rogers have already won over some influential characters in the music business: Their first album came out on Jack White's Third Man Records label, and they've scored high-profile endorsements from the likes of Elvis Costello and T-Bone Burnett. The Alabama duo's throwback folk-country sound is made for the Rogers sisters' almost otherworldly harmonizing — clearly the result of both endless practice and the blessings of blood relation. Secret Sisters will showcase a mix of country classics and originals from an album called Silver Threads and Golden Needles at the 2011 Newport Folk Festival in Newport, R.I.
