“We’ve been fans of the Short Sisters for a long time and we’re thrilled to be bringing them to 333. Their harmonies border on the telepathic, and their concerts have a really fun, friendly vibe. They could be considered old school, but musicianship like theirs never goes out of style.” – Tom Rhoads, 333 host
The Short Sisters are Fay Baird, Kate Seeger and Kim Wallach. They have been singing together since 1979, and they deliver striking and beautiful harmonies on a diverse array of folk songs – old songs from the American, African-American and British traditions, clever and unusual rounds, original songs by Kim Wallach, and well-chosen songs by modern folk songwriters. The songs chosen by the trio tell stories and paint pictures, conveying strong visual images through music. They favor a cappella arrangements but also accompany themselves with guitar, autoharp and banjo. The Short Sisters’ favorite songs, funny or moving, thought-provoking or frivolous, traditional or newly written, convey optimism about tackling life’s challenges.
The Short Sisters are audience favorites who have performed at concerts and festivals around the United States. They have recorded five CDs, the most recent being Downsized (2013).
