Bay area group to play for Tractors & Truffles

The Bay Area-based musical ensemble, The T Sisters, will roll into Fallon for a show in the Barkley Theatre in the Oats Park Art Center on Sept. 10.

“The SF Weekly” named the group as one of 16 artists to watch in 2016, noting their impeccable blend of past and present musical styles, and saying that who knew “you could achieve Zen through folk music.”

Their synchronized, three-part sibling harmonies have drawn rave reviews at all of the major Roots, Folk and Americana music festivals from Oysterpalooza to Strawberry and High Sierra.

The group’s instrumentation—guitars and washboard, backed up by mandolin, stand-up bass and drums—allows them to deliver sassy interpretations of mostly original tunes as well as an occasional cover such as Paul Simon’s “American Tune.”

They released their debut album, “Kindred Lines,” in 2014 followed up by an EP, “Ready for Love,” and they will release a new album this October.

The group will hold an informal conversation on their musical influences and styles at 3:00 p.m. in the Center’s Art Bar. This up close and personal session is free and open to the public.
