Rachel MacLean-Sargent, Sarah's identical twin sister, has joined the CarLeans on a full-time basis! Despite having four small children, Rachel has managed to be present on nearly all the tours and local appearances since the beginning of 2018. Needless to say, the twins harmonies are breathtaking and Rach's presence on and off stage is much welcomed. She is an accomplished singer-songwriter in her own right, and her songs have been featured on many CarLeans' projects.
Jim Carpenter and Sarah MacLean are laying out and rehearsing new songs for an upcoming album scheduled to be released in the spring of 2020.
The band will begin recording in the fall, preceding a New England tour and a southern tour beginning in Charleston, South Carolina in December. Plans are also in the works for another Texas tour after the first of the year . . . anchored in our favorite town, New Braunfels.
