Friends and comrades–We have a couple exciting events in the mix!  We are so excited to be bringing some Celtic roots music to the MN Opera House for Drumming the Soul Awake Solstice Blessing.  On the 23rd of December, we’ll be opening for the Wild Colonial Bhoys at the Hook & Ladder!  Join us for upcoming performances at the Dubliner, our home stage, from 9:00 until close.  Treat someone at the Claddagh Irish Pub in Maple Grove where we serenade with an acoustic happy hour/dinner set from 6:00-9:00.  Looking forward to another weekend up at the Gunflint Tavern  on the North Shore, and a radio set on WTIP.  Tell stories to your neighbors and strangers, listen to each other, create sacred space for those your life touches.  Take root and reach out!

If you’ve not yet had a chance, visit sistertree.bandcamp.com to hear our debut/demo album, and come to a performance to pick up our newest album, Banish Misfortune!  Only available hand to hand or by mail (ping us on FB or send us a note), digital distribution is finally getting underway, soon available.  Hope to catch up with you soon!


We render radiant, expansive harmonies for strings and voices, original and traditional tunes and folk ballads, favorites and downright far-fetched selections suited to many occasions.  For ceremonies and celebrations, festivals and front porch parlors, we bring you roots inspired musings that are grounded in Traditional Celtic and Americana sensibilites.  Exploring with an independent spirit, roving over the wild and storied landscapes of life, collecting, tinkering, and translating our heritage, we envibe with the rhythms of sugarplums dropped in the forest.

  1. Hello Again Wonderful Women;

    This is Tom from the Burned Down Cafe’ telling you that you & your music are wonderful.

    I Love the CD but must give it to a friend. Another Female fiddler. She will also LOVE it. 1-715/209-1074

    Please autograph 2 more for us here at the Burned Down Cafe’ and let me know how you would like me to pay for them. Is there just the one CD? If there are two CDs please autograph 2 of the second CD and put them onto the bill as well.

    1. Tom! Just saw this. There is only the one CD, and I’ll a couple more to Box 222. Probably the easiest way to pay for them would be to tip us out on sistertree.bandcamp.com. We’d be honored to come up and play again next season! What a blast–my kids loved every second on the island, as did we!

      Thanks again for hosting, so proud of the results with the Enbridge EIS requirement. Playing at your place was definitely a highlight of our summer, and when we get busy with the next recording project, we’ll make sure you know about it 🙂 Hats off to you sir! Dee

  2. such beautiful voices & harmonies, amazing pregger guitar, oh, & barefoot fiddling is a slice of heaven! IrishFest was blessed by you! Thanks.

  3. Dee and Kerri, you were amazing last night. The people who attended our “Honoring the Ancestors” event just loved you and your music. We hope to have you back and support your wild work!
    Blessings of the dark nights,
    a savage daughter

  4. I was able to attend your performance at the Honor the Earth concert in Bemidji last week. Impressive! Listening to your CD now via Bandcamp, doubly impressed!

    Most of your respondents praise your harmonies. Rightly so. Yet your musicianship is as admirable. And as an academic folklorist and 50 year fan of roots music, I amply respect your truth to the tradition. I know many renderings of The Cruel Sister, for example, and yours is the equal of any of them.

    Thank you!

  5. spending a week in Grand Marais was awesome enough, hearing you at the Gunflint Tavern was the icing on the cake!

    Thank you!
