Friends and comrades–Our last Thursday of the month residency at the Dubliner Pub will be rollicking as in days of yore! We’ll have our first performance at the Gunflint Tavern in Grand Marais at the end of the month, and are very much looking forward to some time on the North Shore! Kerri Joy will be joined by Quentin Vestur, a Breton harper, visiting for the next few weeks, and you can find out where they will be sharing their musings with Highland and Uilleann piper Ryan Behnke as Belle Chance Trio. We have really been enjoying our Thursday dinner sets at the Claddagh Pub! We’ll be there the first three Thursdays in May, and hope to bring some guest musicians! We are so blessed to be roving and in fine company! We are also very much looking forward to joining the throng at In the Heart of the Beast’s Annual May Day Festival. If you are a fan of Dr. Who, we’re playing at the CONsole Room, a convention for enthusiasts over Mother’s Day weekend. On May 16th, we are joining the SERFs at the Wild Tymes to pre-party for the Flogging Molly show next door at the newly renovated Palace Theater! The following weekend will mark the rise of the phoenix that is Tom’s Burned Down Bar on Madeline Island, where we’ll be performing Friday and Saturday 5.19 & 5.20 celebrating their unique history and cheering on the Mad Isle Marathoners. 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. We are seriously close with recording our new CD, Banish Misfortune, and plan to release it late spring/early summer! 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.
“Somewhere between the woad and the reels, I was dumbstruck by your collective good vibration. I think your sound is absolutely perfectly like the original folkies I used to hear when I was a pup!” ~Martin Furey of The High Kings
