On Saturday afternoon, February 9, the SISTER BROTHERS (Dan Landry, Jim MacKenzie, and Heidi Rentería) will perform a sit-down concert of American songs from the mid-1800s through the first half of the 20th century, along with some from more recent times. Our set list will include songs from songwriting masters like the Delmore Brothers, Bill Monroe, Bob Nolan, Joe Newberry, and Darrell Scott, as well as some unknown composers, and from performers like the Louvin Brothers, the Stanley Brothers, the Everly Brothers, Webb Pierce, Jim & Jesse, and even the Benny Goodman Orchestra!

ABOUT THE SISTER BROTHERS:
The Sister Brothers are a Santa Cruz–based vocal trio favoring close, three-part harmonies. We sing songs with roots in, or influenced by, the Appalachian, bluegrass, and old-school country music traditions of the United States. Accompanied by acoustic guitar and tenor ukulele, our music is performed the old-fashioned way—without amplification.
