Identical twins Camille and Kennerly perform internationally and have a large fan-base. As actors, The Kitt twins have appeared in three feature films—two of which also feature the twins performing on their harps. Camille and Kennerly are easily the most followed and recognizable harpists in the world. They have a passion and flair for arranging and performing contemporary music for harp duet. They were trained classically but their true musical love and passion is playing rock, metal, alternative and crossover genres. The Harp Twins perform on identical statuesque acoustic concert grand harps as well as identical modern ebony electric harps. Most recently, Camille and Kennerly teamed up with Harpsicle/Rees Harps to show what can be done with smaller, affordable harps. The twins’ new metallic blue harps bring a new element to the breadth of their duet harp revolution. Camille and Kennerly have created a unique niche for themselves: they play rock and metal music using only their two harps. Unlike other artiss who cover contemporary music, the twins use no back track, studio, or production people. They are the archetype of true independent artists. Camille and Kennerly are recognized for their remarkable duet harp arrangements of songs by artists such as Guns N’ Roses, Iron Maiden, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth, Aerosmith, AC/DC, The Rolling Stones, Blue Oyster Cult, Scorpions, Eagles, The Police, Bon Jovi, Pink Floyd, U2, Journey, Evanescence, The Cranberries, Coldplay, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Deep Purple, and many more. The twins also arrange and perform a jukebox of TV and movie soundtrack, and video game hits.
The Kitt twins made their Hollywood film debut as the Merry Christian Twins in the feature film “Politics of Love” as actors, soundtrack writers, and soundtrack performers (harp and vocal). Camille and Kennerly have been cast as principal roles in several commercials. They are both Third Degree Black Belts in Taw Kwon Do and are former Tae Kwon Do instructors. The twins are also “Distinguished Experts” in rifle marksmanship and are trained in horseback riding. They were competitive swimmers for many years as children. Camille and Kennerly graduated “Summa Cum Laude” (with highest honors) from the prestigious Conservatory of Music at Wheaton College, both with a Bachelor of Music degree in Harp Performance.
