The T SISTERS are an authentic family band based out of Oakland, CA. 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, jazz and early 90's R & B, each sister brings a unique vocal and lyrical style to a repertoire that is at once modern and timeless.
Two leading innovators of the guitar, GRAMMY nominated Windham Hill superstar, Alex de Grassi and GRAMMY winning classical guitarist, Andrew York, join forces to fuse the sounds and traditions of steel and nylon into a unique duo program. With roots in seemingly different traditions - de Grassi as a largely self-taught folk and jazz musician and York as a trained classical artist - a mutual passion for exploring all types of music has led these two acclaimed composers/performers to branch out and find a common ground. In their music steel-string and classical guitar interact seamlessly. Juxtaposing original compositions, improvisation, and unlikely arrangements of everything from Monk to Piazzolla to the Police, their duo performances take audiences for a ride through astonishingly diverse terrain. This collaboration is sure to delight!
