Close Harmony Comes Naturally to The T Sisters

The three Tietjen sisters -- older sister Erika, and twins Chloe and Rachel -- have been playing together since they were kids growing up in Berkeley. As my Do List co-host John Vanderslice notes, they specialize in tight, intricate harmonies within an Americana framework. Sometimes the instrumentation is sparse, and sometimes it's bright as Technicolor, like when they have a full string band. The songs are originals, and a mix of folk and pop covers. The sisters worked with legendary Bay Area bluegrass queen Laurie Lewis on their first album. But their real claim to fame is that they sang "The Star Spangled Banner" to open a San Francisco Giants game a few years ago.

The T Sisters co-head a fantastic bill to celebrate International Women's Day, along with Megan Slankard and the Wreckage, and the all women chorus Conspiracy of Venus at the Great American Music Hall on March 9, and then they're at Hopmonk in Sonoma on March 11. Details here.
