Sisters Folk Festival Free Summer Concert Series

Sisters Folk Festival (SFF) presents a free summer concert series at Fir Street Park, supported in part by the Roundhouse Foundation.

Friday, July 15, award-winning songwriters Beth Wood and RJ Cowdery will perform as a co-bill, each performing compelling sets to kick off the series. Wood is a modern-day troubadour and believer in the power of song. Her exceptional musicianship, crafty songwriting and commanding stage presence have been winning over audiences for 18 years.

Cowdery is a Columbus, Ohio-based artist who has solidified herself as a standout of the next generation of performing songwriters. RJ is becoming a much-sought-after performer and guitar player, highlighted in 2015 with her first main-stage performance at the Kerrville Folk Festival.

On Saturday, July 23, Boston-based country folk quintet The Novel Ideas will perform. Featuring the voices of three different songwriters, The Novel Ideas create a blend of pastoral, harmony-driven and plaintive Americana.

Thursday, August 4, the series will conclude with the Irish Americana roots and bluegrass group I Draw Slow. This Dublin-based band has been drumming up enthusiastic reviews in Ireland since the release of their top ten second album, Redhills. Irish national broadcaster RTE made Redhills album of the week.
