Friends and comrades–We are excited to bring our music to the Minnesota Renaissance Festival for the Highland Fling on 8.25 & 26, and 9.8 & 9 for Shamrocks and Shenanigans! We are also honored to support The High Kings at the Cedar Cultural Center once again, on August 28th! Another unique opportunity at the Cedar is coming up 9.18, where we will be offering a workshop for the Global Roots Festival with the Zhou Family Band about Life Passages as noted through traditional music from East China and the Celtic/Americana genre we explore. We’ll be performing at Shangri-La Festival at Harmony Park on 9.2, and FeMNFest in Duluth on 9.21. Fur trade era historical reenactment events in October will include our music and energies as well–The Big Island Rendezvous is 10.6 & 7, and the Mankato History Festival 10.12 & 13 (with French harper Quentin Vestur) are going to include all kinds of olden ways, skills, and barters. Much to look forward to, hope we see you out and about! 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! These are available hand to hand or by mail (ping us on FB or send us a note), and digital distribution is available via email. Hope to catch up with you soon!
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
