Gung Ho for Shows: Sisters Folk Fest Winter Concert Series | Upcoming Shows | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

You’re going to want to clear your calendar for these later winter nights, because these shows, brought to you by the people at Sisters Folk Fest, are some of the highlights of the season. Hopefully by then, instead of needing hot cocoa, you’ll just let that sweet folk music warm you up!

All shows will be held in the Sisters High School auditorium.

Shook Twins & John Craigie
Feb. 2



This is a loaded lineup – both Shook Twins and John Craigie have become must-sees around the state of Oregon. The Shook Twins (Katelyn and Laurie, identical twins) have two of the most elegant voices you’ll ever hear. Backed by their full band, they take on the form as a true powerhouse of folk music. Craigie, having opened on tour for Jack Johnson in 2017, is a prime example of a singer/songwriter doing things very well. He brings that right combination of emotion and fun to an energetic set. This co-bill is going to make a very worthwhile Saturday night.


Darlingside, River Whyless
March 6

A Sisters Folk Festival veteran, quartet Darlingside is definitely not one to stay inside the box. They bring an innovative and fresh take to their wild and ambient world of indie rock. Setting the night for them will be North Carolina’s River Whyless, a band you absolutely need to get in rotation. Not only do they put on a good Tiny Desk Concert, but they offer a quality of folk music that is very tender and personal. It will for sure be a goosebumps type of atmosphere in the room that night.
Imar
March 18

A Scottish supergroup built with a lot of experience and talent, Imar will offer their modern take on Scottish folk. The Glasgow-based five piece takes inspiration from their roots, but still finds a way to flip the music through crafty and fun experimentation. And yes, there will be a fiddle.
