Event Information

Saint Sister, co-presented by the Irish Arts Center, is part of the Spring Revolution festival, National Sawdust’s annual two week festival celebrating the musical revolution created by Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. Held from March 1st through March 11th, this year Spring Revolution celebrates the voice of multicultural women, with every night featuring female curators, artists and composers because the female perspective is the human perspective and the human perspective should be inclusive.
“It’s easy to get lost in the beautifully arranged soundscapes” of Saint Sister, Stereogum says. Named “the best new band in Ireland,” the electro-folk duo comes to the US for a rare concert after a 2017 year filled with sold-out performances across the pond. Their newest single, Causing Trouble, ruminates on the transition from Belfast to Dublin, and was nominated for “Song of the Year” by Ireland’s annual Choice Music Prize.
