“Killer bottleneck banjo, thumping kick drum and sweet wailing harmonies – some sort of bleached Black Rebel Motorcycle Club at their most twangy with the feisty attitude of June Carter!” (Line Of Best Fit)
We’re delighted to bring Swedish sisters Greta, Stella & Sunniva to Portsmouth for the first time – the self-styled “queens of banjo punk” have a foundation of roots music and Americana settled in their hearts and are famed for their brilliant live shows as well as their exceptionally crafted songs.
The three sisters can’t recall when or why they started playing, the music’s always been there. In their late teens, the sisters joined forces with their dad, who for decades was a one man band playing old blues and country tunes for a living.
“This is absurdly wonderful – these Stockholm sisters turn Americana on its head!” (Mojo Magazine)
Their album releases to date have received great acclaim by the press and have been released in numerous countries. The releases in combination with relentless touring have given the band a reputation as one of the music scene’s most noticeable live acts.
Since the beginning, the sisters have guarded their independence, but when approached by Warner Music they felt intrigues to break their indie tradition and make their 4th album “Coyote & Sirens” on a major label – one of the few Swedish acts to get singed directly to a US major record company.
In 2015 they were invited to join Robbie Williams as opener and special guests on his arena tour throughout Europe. Later that year they also toured the US with Gary Clark Jr and Brandi Carlile
