 Laurie Fisher, come together with an aim to make old mountain singing resonate in the present day. The trio presents an upbeat, energetic show celebrating the musical styles of Maybelle and Sara Carter of the legendary 
Carter Family Band, unique traditional ballads sung and taught by women, and folk tunes from Appalachian traditions. The core of their show is a strong blend of harmony singing as well as a passion for women of
