I let my music take me where my heart wants to go –Cat Stevens
See Britt LIVE
THE BROOK SISTERS
ROCKWOOD MUSIC HALL
MAY 8TH, 8 PM
Are you brave enough to get real with this big-smile, Joni-wanna-be, Montana-made singer?
First, she digs up the roots. Next, she brews a kettle of poetry in the confines of her Manhattan studio. Adding 3 cups her favorite musicians to the batter, Britt bakes the compound in hand-sized dish. When the table is open, you grab your chair and wait for your slice. Britt is a chef of transparency, deep thinking, goofiness, her specialty is individual connection in a crowd.
Not only does Britt play as a singer-songwriter, but is also freakishly lucky to play music regularly with her sister, Kendra Jo Brook. This young woman has created THREE bands that perform throughout NYC as often as possible. Brittany plays lead rhythm guitar for the all-female band The Snowy Mountain Sisters, The East River Ramblers, and The Brook Sisters. If you want to travel back to the roots of traditional folk music, than you need these bands in your life!
Kendra Jo and Brittany grew up playing music with their family band in the farm hills of Judith Gap, MT. Now they are make their living as actor-musicians in NYC and love to share the music of their roots from the subway platforms to theatre houses to bluegrass venues alike.
Kendra is the founder and manager of the three bands that embody her favorite style: The Brook Sisters, The Snowy Mountain Sisters, and the East River Ramblers. Come out to dance, clap, sing, and smile: it’s strings on fire and melody full of heart!
It was through Musical Theater and gigging with bands across the city that Britt's sister, Kendra Jo, met and collected this group of brassy, classy, and wildly talented women. They played one gig together for the purpose of joining a club, but quickly realized that something special had been formed. Two years later, The Snowy Mountain Sisters are going strong with a growing infamy among bluegrass and country music circles!
The East River Ramblers:
On the 3rd Monday of every month, Bar9 in Hell's Kitchen plays host to an alternating group of musicians – Kendra Jo's top picks among NYC's bluegrass pickers! It's a wild-west two hours!
