ACT EVENT

Sandhill Stage: THE KRICKETS

WHAT

Sandhill Stage is excited to have The Krickets for the first time. Hailing from the same area of the state as a crowd favorite,The Currys, this all female group is so great you’ve got to wonder what is in the water up there.

The Krickets are a female swamp folk group from Florida’s Gulf Coast. Produced by Ben Tanner of the Alabama Shakes, they released their debut album ‘Spanish Moss Sirens’ in May of 2016. Folk harmony-driven with an earthy acoustic instrumentation, the music is what Paste Magazine describes as “a truly stunning, one-of-a-kind sound.”

Recently named the 2016 IMEA Folk Artist of the Year and recipient of the 2016 Folk/Singer Songwriter Song of the Year at The Independent Music Awards, the group originally came together to play a cancer benefit in honor of Cristina “Cricket” Russell. Now, they are able to support the cause by donating a portion of every album sale to The Cricket Fund and Beyond which provides women’s health services to the uninsured.

Band members: Melissa Bowman (vocals, guitar, banjo), Emily Stuckey (vocals, guitar, percussion, mandolin), Lauren Spring (vocals, guitar, fiddle, mandolin) and Katrina Kolb (bass)
