ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Marion Halliday, and her band Trickster Sister, is proud purveyor of their own special blend of original, women-powered urban Americana music. The band is comprised of two sisters, Marion Halliday (guitar, vocals, songwriting) and Jane Halliday (violin, banjo uke, vocals),and their sister-in-music, Donna Bostock (bass/percussion, vocals). This all-women group brings together their diverse talents to create an enticing blend of indie, folk, and bluegrass musical styles, with lush vocal harmonies over-top.

A primary focus of the band is to cultivate original music written by Marion who has found great inspiration in the rich 400-year history of her current Philadelphia home, infused with her native Kentucky roots. She has crafted for the band a number of modern folks songs based on historical landmarks in Philadelphia, such as Laurel Hill Cemetery (Track 3 - Resting on Laurel Hill), the Eternal Flame Memorial at Washington Square (Track 2 - Lost Things) and Eastern State Penitentiary (Track 6 - Callahan's Song). She has also written a series of contemporary, contemplative songs that reflect on the challenges we face in our modern world - from the heroine and meth epidemic decimating rural Kentucky and much of America (Track 4 - Bullitt County), to the challenges of loving someone with depression and addiction (Track 1 - Can't Changer the Truth), to dealing with the struggles of failed relationships in mid-life (Track 5 - Walking in Tall Grass) - her music spans a range of topics and appeals to a variety of listeners.
