Stairwell sisters
The Stairwell Sisters bring together their love of old-time country songs and rowdy fiddle tunes from the hotbed of traditional music, the hills of San Francisco. Energetic musicianship and tight vocal arrangements make for a kicking quintet that makes both good listening and good dancing. Influenced by such favorites as Hazel Dickens & Alice Gerrard, The Stanley Brothers and Tommy Jarrell, The Stairwell Sisters bring both familiar and obscure songs to life as only sisters can.

Growing up with a banjo-picking papa, Lisa Berman became adept in old-time music with The Crooked Jades. She adds a down and dirty sound with her skilled dobro playing. Martha Hawthorne has been playing traditional old-time, bluegrass, and Tex-Mex music on guitar and bass for many years. Martha anchors the band with her steady bass, and her encyclopedic knowledge of Carter Family lyrics.

Evie Ladin began playing clawhammer banjo and clogging at the age of eight, performing with her sister at music festivals across the United States. A versatile musician and rhythm dancer, Evie performs with a variety of professional ensembles in the San Francisco Bay Area and nationally, including Keith Terry & Crosspulse.

Berkeley native Stephanie Prausnitz brings an exciting repertoire of hot old-time fiddle tunes culled from years of fiddling in Atlanta. Stephanie plays for contra and square dances on both coasts, and fiddles with The Crooked Jades. Finally, the rock solid rhythm guitar of Sue Sandlin drives The Stairwell Sisters along.
Sue grew to love old-time country music through regular family hoe-downs and her grandpa's collection of Grand Ole Opry 8-tracks.
