Raised in a wildly musical household in Welfleet, Mass., the Parkington Sisters create an aural experience that is both magnetic in its delivery and genuine in its emotional impact. Rose, Nora, Sarah, and Ariel Parkington are classically-trained multi-instrumentalists who have combined their talents in composition and songwriting. Indie-folk with a classical twist, their music is embodied by vibrant string arrangements combined with tight, interwoven four-part vocal harmonies and gorgeous, blending voices.
Ambitious and intricate, the Parkington Sisters produce an undeniable expression of sisterhood. Following a successful year -- with performances at the Bonnaroo Music Festival, an extensive tour with the Dropkick Murphys, including a sold-out Fenway show, and opening for Mavis Staples at Boston's Symphony Hall.
The concert will be held in the Snowden Auditorium, 1st Floor, Wheatley Building at Mass Boston. The best place to park is in the Beacons Lot, located just behind the Soccer Field.
