SisterTree renders radiant, expansive harmonies for strings and voices, and kick it back with old favorites and downright far-fetched selections grounded in Celtic and Americana Traditions.  Roving over the wild and storied landscapes of life, they envibe with the rhythms of sugarplums dropped in the forest.  From lilt to throttle, they are Gaia’s sirens atop the scrape of a mountain ridge, awash in an avalanche of symbiotic energies hauled up from the bones of earth to the starlight.

“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

  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!
