AAFFM Presents: Blackfoot Daisy, and Rosin Sisters
May 21, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT$10
Blackfoot daisies are hearty wild flowers that grow on the prairies of Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. You can find them growing naturally in the Texas Blackland prairie, which runs from the Red River to the Texas-Oklahoma border. The band, BLACKFOOT DAISY, is a humble foursome (sometimes fewer) that plays original, Americana style music. Based in the Atlanta metro area, the members are a little haunted by the prairie, the wind, the shifting of tall grasses, the sound of crickets, and a lonesome train whistle drifting through the night.
BLACKFOOT DAISY is a blend of four very talented musicians. Songwriter Don Sechelski is featured on guitar and vocals. Don has been writing and performing music in the Atlanta area for over 30 years. From Atlanta to New Orleans to Chicago and back to Atlanta, he is still chasing the buffalo.
Wendy DuMond also plays guitar, sings and writes songs. Wendy has the soul of a poet and the vision of an artist. From Montana, through Oklahoma, up to New York, and back to Atlanta, she follows the Bucking Horse Moon.
Adam Sechelski is found on guitar, mandolin, percussion, vocals. Adam is the backbeat, the glue that holds it together. Atlanta to Boston to Mississippi and back to Atlanta, Adam is a stage gypsy, an actor, and a dreamer.
Bobby Moore from Roanoke, VA, plays fiddle, mandolin and banjo. He loves the sound of a lonesome train whistle.
THE ROSIN SISTERS
The Rosin Sisters — Barbara Panter-Connah, Ann Whitley-Singleton, and Jan Smith, are three fiddlers who combine their voices, guitars, and banjo to create a unique blend of Southern Appalachian roots music.
Cutting their teeth fiddling for Contra and Cajun dances, they have also performed at festivals and concerts in the Atlanta area and the Southeast for decades in various bands. They collectively teach harmony singing at the Blue Ridge Old-time Music Week in Mars Hill, NC, and they each teach music privately – Jan and Barbara in the Atlanta area and Ann as Director of the Georgia Pick & Bow Traditional Music School, an after-school non-profit in her adopted hometown of Dahlonega, GA.
After years of friendship, The Rosin Sisters formed in 2006 to further explore their love of traditional music and song, and have produced three CDs: Sweet Sunny South, which received a stellar review in the Old-Time Herald, Walking Through Time’s Door, and their most recent, It’s All Your Fault.
