Johnson Hall Free Waterfront Concert featuring The Gawler Sisters
July 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm| Free
Fun-loving, folk-singing, fiddle-playing sisters, Molly, Edith, and Elsie, bring beautiful songs and stories from their roots in the heart of Maine. Their extensive collection of tunes in the Scots-Irish, Franco-American and Scandinavian traditions is complemented by angelic three-part-harmony, gutsy worksongs, folk-blues, and amusing odes to everyday life.
With an infectious spirit and sparkling musicianship, the trio creates a sense of community and grassroots connection that is welcoming and from the heart. Bennett joins the sisters to play guitar and banjo and add some bottom end to the mix.
The Sister’s first album “Home Again Home Again” brought their family together to highlight the music of the sisters. It includes John, Ellen, and Bennett backing up several tracks and providing low harmonies, fiddle riffs and guffaws.
