Stairwell SistersPrepare yourself for a night of roof-raising music when all-gal old-time teardown the Stairwell Sisters and traditional bluegrass outfit True Blue 2 take the stage as part of the San Francisco Bluegrass & Old-Time Festival!

With their driving stringband music, sweet country harmonies, and red-hot buckdancing: the Stairwell Sisters apply their passion for old-time country songs and rowdy fiddle tunes to a wild, good-time show. Energetic musicianship and tight vocal arrangements are the order of the day when Lisa Berman (dobro), Stephanie Prausnitz (fiddle), Evie Ladin (clawhammer banjo and clogging), Martha Hawthorne (bass), and Sue Sandlin (guitar and tiple) take the stage with their fiddle tunes from Alabama to Scotland, old songs of trains, boats and possums, and new songs of loss, love, and all-night parties.

True Blue 2Recent winner of the East Bay Express’s Best Stringband award, the rowdy San Francisco quintet has appeared on A Prairie Home Companion, at New York's Lincoln Center, San Francisco’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and the "V for Violins" spot on Elmo's World.

San Francisco Bluegrass & Old-Time FestivalTrue Blue 2, a traditional bluegrass band with their instinctive harmonies and an organic rhythmic feel reminiscent of Flatt & Scruggs kick off the evening. True Blue 2 is comprised of Del Williams on guitar, Avram Siegel on banjo, Jeff King on bass, and Ed Neff on mandolin, with everyone pitching in on vocals.
