Darren & Sharon Carpenter are twins, born six months apart, from Kempsey, NSW. They never really fitted into life on the farm, and they were absolutely hopeless at just about everything. Until that magical day they discovered one of dad's old vinyl records - those other Carpenters, Karen and Richard. Not only did they look similar, but they shared a family name.
Darren and Sharon have hit the road singing. Singing all the songs that made those other Carpenters famous, including Top of the World, We've Only Just Begun, Yesterday Once More, Close To You, Ticket to Ride, Rainy Days and Mondays, Calling Occupant, Jambalaya, Mr Postman, Superstar, Goodbye to Love, Only Yesterday, There's a Kind of Hush, Love Is Surrender and many others - as well as the odd parody . Darren and Sharon are truly country hicks. When they talk, they're from the farm in Kempsey, but when they sing they pay homage to the beautiful sounds of those other Carpenters.
This show is hysterically funny, with beautiful music and songs so memorable you can't help but sing along.
