Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds are coming to Musikfest on August 7, when they’ll open up the evening at the Sands Steel Stage at PNC Plaza for the evening’s concert with The Avett Brothers.
Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds is an eight-piece powerhouse that puts a modern spin on classic soul. The band is led by Arleigh Kincheloe (Sister Sparrow), whose astoundingly powerful voice and sly demeanor make for a spellbinding presence onstage. She is backed by the mighty force of The Dirty Birds, a flock of seven men who masterfully lay down thundering grooves and soaring melodies.
The band has been aptly described as what you get when “you cross Amy Winehouse and Tina Turner with Mick Jagger…” by Glamour magazine and The Wall Street Journal proclaims them as “…stick-to-your-ribs style rock…”
The band has previously wowed audiences at Musikfest 2012 and at the Musikfest Café presented by Yuengling at SteelStacks.
