Sisters Folk Festival Winter Concert Series @ Sisters High School Auditorium
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Sisters Folk Festival Winter

 

Thursday, January 9: The California Honeydrops will return to Sisters after a rousing 2013 festival appearance. Drawing heavily on Southern soul and Bay-area R&B with a twist of New Orleans second-line street music, the Honeydrops defy genres. Their style may not have a name, but one thing is certain: The California Honeydrops don’t just play music; they throw parties.

Saturday, March 1: The incomparable Willy Porter will bring his inventive guitar-playing, passionate songwriting and entertaining stage-show back to Sisters. Porter continues to amaze with heavy guitar-driven instrumentals, heartfelt and insightful lyrics, and absolute humor in his loop-effect stories about the underbelly of society.

Tuesday, March 18: The return of Welsh singer-songwriter Martyn Joseph, a favorite of both the festival and the 2012 winter concerts. Considered a “courageous” live entertainer, Martyn follows in the tradition of social protest and commentary with intimate portrayals of the human condition. His songs reflect a 30-year career with 31 albums and thousands of live performances.

Saturday, March 29: To conclude the series, the festival will present a multi-media performance by the Celtic super-group, Solas. “Irish-America’s most influential band,” according to NPR, will perform as they celebrate the release of Shamrock City, their 11th album and most ambitious project and live show to date. It is a family story of immigration, mining and murder, and the remarkable history of Michael Conway and Butte, Montana.

Doors open at 6:30pm.
