Good harmony in Sutter Creek

By From page B5 | January 24, 2014

The Sutter Creek Theater, 44 Main St. in Sutter Creek, presents Dustbowl Revival and opening act the T Sisters on Saturday, Jan. 25 at 8 p.m.

Dustbowl Revival just blew the house away the last time the group was here with impressive musicanship and a great variety of roots, Dixieland jazz, bluegrass and Americana songs.

The Dustbowl Revival is a Venice-based collective that merges old-school bluegrass, gospel, jug-band, swamp blues and the hot swing of the 1930s to form a spicy roots cocktail.

Known for its inspired live sets, the Dustbowl Revival boldly brings together many styles of traditional American music. Imagine Old Crow Medicine Show meeting Louis Armstrong’s Hot Seven Band in New Orleans or Bob Dylan and Fats Waller jamming with Mumford and Sons on a front porch in 1938.

The T Sisters are an authentic family band based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. The group’s subtle throwback aesthetic calls to mind classic trios past, from the Andrews Sisters and 1960s girl-groups to the sirens from the film “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”

Anchored by diverse influences spanning folk, country, gospel, klezmer and early-’90s R&B, each sister brings a unique vocal and lyrical style to a repertoire that is at once modern and timeless.

Tickets are $19 in advance and $21 the day of show.

Call 209-267-1070 or go to suttercreetheatre.com for more information.
