The sassy, folk-singing T Sisters opened a sold-out show at Crystal Bay Casino on Friday, March 3, joining their Bay Area brethren The California Honeydrops to delight the crowd.

The T Sisters, born and raised in California and now based in the creative hub of Oakland, embody harmony. It’s in their blood, bones, and history. Erika, Rachel and Chloe have been singing and writing music together since childhood, and their lifetime of practice shows.

The three sisters’ inventive songwriting is supported by their own acoustic instrumentation as well as upright bass (Steve Height), mandolin/guitar (Andrew Allen Fahlander), and drums (Marlon Aldana). Their sound represents a continuum of music, from traditional to pop influences, moments of breathtaking a cappella to swells of energetic indie Americana.

Photographer’s notebook: I know I must be biased by I swear they stole the show!  They add more and more to their sets every time I see them, vastly improving each and every time.  I can only hope my photos of them get better by any sort of degree as they improve.
