Sprouting from a small farm in rural Massachusetts, the Green Sisters have had a deep love of music from birth. They’ve been playing venues in New England regularly for five years and have garnered quite the following. It’s hard not to smile when treated with their tight harmonies and high energy tunes; their loving but wry sibling banter makes every live show enjoyable. The four gals get together to play as often as they can. They revel in each other’s company, and jump easily from bluegrass to barbershop to blues to originals of all styles.

|The Gaslight Tinkers
African, Caribbean, Funk, Reggae, and Latin grooves meet traditional fiddle music. It's the genre-bending future of the music of the past. The Gaslight Tinkers' blend of global rhythms creates a joyously danceable sound around a core of traditional New England old time and celtic fiddle music, merging boundless positive energy with melody and song. Since its formation in 2012 the band has lit up the East Coast, the West Coast, and the Caribbean, headlining clubs, dances, and major festivals. Playing what The Valley Advocate describes as “Music that consistently fizzes and pops with unexpected textures and turns,” The Gaslight Tinkers’ shows are packed with delightful surprises, elated crowds, and exuberant musicianship. The sound and energy of I-Shea, Clara, Garrett, and Peter are universally irresistible.
