Erika, Rachel and Chloe Tietjen, who perform as the T Sisters, embody harmony. It’s in their blood, bones and history. Born and raised in California and now based in the creative hub of Oakland, the sisters have been singing and writing music together since childhood, and the lifetime of practice shows. The T Sisters will perform at The Palms Playhouse on Saturday, April 27 starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are $21 for general admission and $12 for students. The T Sisters’ sound spans a continuum of music ranging from traditional to pop, with moments of breathtaking a cappella juxtaposed with swells of energetic indie Americana. In addition to their vocal harmonies, the Ts have a reputation for inventive songwriting and arranging that blends genres and influences seamlessly. In addition to their trademark vocal blend, the siblings play a variety of acoustic instruments such as guitar, banjo and washboard, and frequently perform with a three-piece backing band. It’s been a busy spring for the band. They released their newest EP, “We Are Bound,” in mid March, and then spent several weeks touring Israel, Egypt and Morocco as part of the U.S. State Department-sponsored American Music Abroad program. In the last five years, the T Sisters supported such acts as Indigo Girls, Amos Lee, The Wood Brothers, Todd Rundgren, The Waybacks, Laurie Lewis, ALO, Elephant Revival, The California Honeydrops and more. Notable performances include Merlefest, Kate Wolf Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass,, Sisters Folk Festival, Strawberry Music Festival, Americana Music Association Festival, Music City Roots and A Prairie Home Companion. Following their 2014 debut album “Kindred Lines” (produced by folk/bluegrass legend Laurie Lewis), the T Sisters released their self-titled full-length album in October of 2016. “T Sisters” has received extensive airplay leading to a top position in the Roots Music Reports and climbed the Americana Charts. The Ts collaborated with Oliver Wood of the Wood Brothers on their 2017 EP “Live at Tiny Telephone.” The sisters chose to work with Wood again on their newest EP, “We Are Bound.” Tickets for the Saturday, April 27 show are available at Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters, Armadillo Music in Davis, Davids’ Broken Note in Woodland, online via The Palms’ website and Eventbrite, and at the door if the show is not sold out.
