Sister Sparrow at 9:30 Club
Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds flew into DC on Thursday, November 29 for their first headlining performance at the 930 Club. This New York-based band crowded the stage with nine performers, who created a lush sound that filled the venue. A three-person horn section provided blues and jazz, while brother and sister duo Arleigh and Jackson Kincheloe took the lead up front with powerful vocals and some intense harmonica playing.
Arleigh is the perfect lead to this band; her vocals are strong, and her charisma on stage pulled the crowd in with every song. Attendees bunched up close to be part of the experience and several fans were dancing to the contagious rhythms.
The Rad Trads, also from New York, opened for the evening. Their rock and jazzy melodies were the perfect way to start this evening. Photos/write-up: Shantel Mitchell Breen
