The Sassafras Sisters are a trio of teenagers from Olympia, WA who play and sing old time music, honky tonk, old country, and more. Ruby, Annie, and Ellie play bass, guitar, and fiddle and sing in rich, three-part harmony. They’ve been playing together since elementary school and love exploring old Appalachian music as well as bringing in new current day music and incorporating both into their repertoire. They’ve recently performed at Centrum’s Festival of American Fiddle Tunes in the Fridays at the Fort concert series, opened for award-winning bluegrass guitar player Molly Tuttle, and took first place in the youth Stringband category at the Allegheny Fiddlers Convention. As equally at home at an intimate house concert as they are on a professional stage, The Sassafras Sisters deliver memorable and inspiring performances wherever they go.
