Tigirlily brings blend of country, folk, pop music Friday to Grand Forks

Nashville recording artists, the North Dakota duo Tigirlily is set to perform from 8 to 10 p.m. Friday at the Brick and Barley Bar and Restaurant in downtown Grand Forks.

Sisters Kendra and Krista Slaubaugh from Hazen, N.D., will entertain listeners with acoustic music with proven appeal for pop, folk and country music audiences.

The event will also feature Jordynn Johnsrud, of Goodridge, Minn., who will play a musical set.

Tigirily, which debuted their first original album in 2013, released two more extended-play works in 2014. The pair's latest work, "Wild Creatures," released in June, charted at No. 14 on iTunes Country Charts and No. 5 on the Billboard Heatseekers northwest regional chart.

Admission to Friday's performance is $6 at the door. Guests must be 21.

The Brick and Barley is at 9 N. Third St.
