The T Sisters may sing about sibling rivalry and jealous love in their song "Wind and Rain", but they do it in perfect harmony. Join indie/folk/Americana musicians Erika, Rachel, and Chloe as they present three of their songs on the most recent #ShelterInPlace session.

You can find out more about their work by visiting their website, linked on the channel. "This past spring, the T’s journeyed to Nashville to create a compelling EP with renowned artist/producer Oliver Wood of The Wood Brothers.

Thank you T Sisters!

Outreach

For two decades, Southwest Roots Music has provided free educational outreach activities for more than 20,000 New Mexicans, from grade schoolers to seniors. Activities have included interactive demonstrations and workshops with internationally touring artists, dance lessons, film programs, sustainable cuisine events, and in-school programs. One of our favorites places ninth-generation Nigerian drummer Akeem Ayanniyi in schools and libraries, where he engages students in conversation about Africa and forms an ensemble with the kids using the traditional ashiko, djembe and bata drums. If you would like to arrange free Southwest Roots Music outreach programming in your school or community center, please contact us at ThirstyEarFest@gmail.com.
