Contemporary Folk Trio Series: Great Americas Songbook — Great American Songbook  

T Sisters

Lauded as “An irresistibly joyful sibling combo steeped in American roots music” by the San Jose Mercury News, this Oakland-born trio of singing sisters combines folk, Americana, gospel, bluegrass, country, and soul with unearthly harmonies that only a lifetime of singing together can create. The sisters’ lushly arranged original compositions and engaging approach have won fans of Todd Rundgren, the California Honeydrops, and ALO, and they’ve appeared on Garrison Keillor’s epochal public radio show A Prairie Home Companion. On the heels of their first full-length album, 2014’s Laurie Lewis produced Kindred Lines, the sisters have recently released their self-titled follow-up, 2016’s T Sisters. Featuring a collection of engrossing new originals and a cover of Irish balladeer Foy Vance’s “Make It Rain,” a song made famous by Ed Sheeran on the Sons of Anarchy soundtrack, T Sisters represents a leap forward in songcraft and production, and includes the sisters’ working band including string specialist Andrew Allen Fahlander, bassist Steve Height, and drummer Marlon Aldana. The T Sisters return after their sold out debut to start the 2016 Summer Sessions.
