Nerissa and Katryna Nields have been the darlings of the coffeehouse/festival scene since 1991, with tunes ranging from off-the-hook idiosyncratic to kicking to heartbreaking.
For their latest CD, what does a folk-rock sister duo write about after twenty years in the music business; a career which produced fifteen CDs, three books, a DVD, a thriving children's music educational empire, four children and two husbands (one apiece)?
The "full catastrophe" of course, taken from the line from Zorba the Greek: "I'm a man, so I married. Wife, children, house, everything. The full catastrophe."
The Nields sisters have created a powerful, passionate, thoughtful, humorous work that explores the crazy ride that is this insane twenty-first century idea that in a post-feminist world it might somehow be possible for a woman to raise her children, maintain her relationship and career and contribution to her community while tending to her artistic soul at the same time.
The Nields come damn close with The Full Catastrophe, their sixteenth album in two full decades of work.
