ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"[Three Weird Sisters] make bewitching, eclectic music ... think the Dixie Chicks do Shakespeare." -- Bill Osinski, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, October 12, 2003

Three Weird Sisters... There are three of them (Brenda Sutton, Teresa Gibson Powell, and Gwen Knighton.) They are weird (or at least their collection and presentation of songs is weird, everything from Renaissance ballads to 'country on a harp' to sf with a twist.) And they are sisters of a sort (different parents, same heart.)

Three Weird Sisters play at folk clubs and music festivals near their homeland of Atlanta, Georgia. They're branching out with appearances across the country (see their web page for a location near you!)

Brenda Sutton has been actively involved in music her whole life and has been a singer/songwriter for over twenty years. Rarely on time for any event, Brenda is the guitarist / percussionist who keeps Three Weird Sisters in time with her odd "Gene Krupa" style of bodhran playing. It's hard to describe how Brenda makes the sounds she gets out of a frame drum while using two paint brushes held together with masking tape. Really.

Teresa Gibson Powell sings in crisp, clear tones and plays the 3/4 upright bass - an instrument far taller and wider (and heavier) than herself. She plucks it with gusto and bows it with passion. You'll hear her bluegrass roots in many of TWS's arrangements. Teresa is an avid herbalist, Reiki Master, and possesses a large and beautiful tattoo that spans the entire canvas of her back.

Gwen Knighton took the Scottish Harp Society of America's National title in the Journeyman division for the year 2000 and won a study scholarship to the 2001 Edinburgh Harp Festival, where she hobnobbed with champion harpers from other countries. In 2001, she competed in her first SHSA National competition at the Master level and placed fourth in a field of professional harpers, all of whom had previously won the title Her musical background runs the gamut from classical vocal training, arranging, harmony, conducting and theory classes to her lifelong fascination for traditional music and special love for murder ballads.

Together these three women make a unique blend of instruments and voice. They love singing together, and that's evident in the delivery of their material. Come listen to them - you too may become a Weirdo for Three Weird Sisters.

Note: Three Weird Sisters is not the Wyrd Sisters. We enjoy their music and don't want you to be confused. While we'd love you to buy our CD, if you're looking for the Wyrd Sisters you need to go to another CD site. But before you go, try our samples - you may like what you hear!

Rite the Second Time, Too!
The biggest worry with groups I like is whether or not the second album will live up to the love I have for the first album. Three Weird Sisters has definitely done that! (Phew!) I thoroughly enjoyed this album and found delight in the more adventurous harmonies the ladies are using (especially in New Forest!). To All the Boys I've Loved Before had me laughing out loud, and just a warning, Like Their Feet Have Wings will be stuck in your head for DAYS after you hear it - so catchy! Kudos, Sisters, you did it again!

Songs for circle, fun, and memories
Gave it the "good listen" which means through studio phones with the lyrics out in front of me to catch anything I missed. I love it!!

If you have "Rite for the First Time," you are already familiar with the Three Weird Sisters sound. That's harmonies, harps, upright bass, and various other noises. It's a folksy affair. : )

Several songs seem "just right" for your circle work, solitary or coven (my immediate faves are "Hymn," "May Queen," and "Draw Down the Moon" / "Hot Mud Song") . There's the usual humor mixed in to keep you smiling or laughing outloud (after recent work harries, "Pointy-Haired Boss" was particularly soul-soothing).

There are great woman-themed remembrances that will make you smile and cry about your Mama or Gram, too. And so much more! Did I mention 18 tracks (2 are an intro and reprise)?

I Don't Know
I love this group and decided to purchase the CD. Because I travel a great deal I had it sent to my daughter and she would send it me. I have not received my CD from my daughter yet. So I guess it you could give it 10 stars, 5 from me and 5 from my daughter.

Imaginative, entertaining music!
It's been a while since I stumbled across a folk/filk band that left me feeling thoroughly pleased with my purchase, but I am happy to say that Three Weird Sisters has been a delightful treat! Their music is imaginative and distinctive. I have been listening to this cd, and Rite The First Time on repeat for the last two weeks, and I hope they will have another cd out soon!

Loved it, quirky pieces and all
Hair of the Frog was such fun, and I especially like the Granny gardening song, Least of My Kind (about werewolves) and Merlin. I knjoy the fantasy connections with this filk/folk music. Keep it up!
