When Ellen and Wendy Britton were teenagers, they created the blues duo, The Britton Sisters. Later, Ellen moved to Nashville in the 80s with her bassist/guitarist husband, Bobby King. Ellen’s guitar and vocals have since graced the likes of Martina McBride, Pam Tillis, and Tanya Tucker, appearing on the Jay Leno, Conan O Brien, and Rosie O'Donnell shows, among others. Wendy has continued to write and perform as a duo with her husband, Peter Young.
