Needle & Thread

Sister harmonies

Needle & Thread are Ella and Maddy Zuellig, a banjo guitar playing singing sister duo from Fort Collins, Colorado. Surrounded by traditional music since birth, they perform old ballads and songs from early American music. At age thirteen, they are keeping the tradition alive by learning from source recordings and directly from modern day performers such as Alice Gerrard, KC Groves, and Clara Delfina. Their sister harmonies and authentic style will take you back to times past. Learn more about Needle & Thread and upcoming shows at
