THE GAWLER SISTERS Holiday Concert
The Gawler Sisters will perform a holiday concert featuring old and new tunes from many folk traditions, songs celebrating the season, and offer beautiful interweaving harmonies backed by fiddle, banjo, cello and ukulele.

Raised in the rich folk tradition of their acclaimed Maine-based musical family, Molly, Edith and Elsie Gawler have carried on the musical legacy.  Although the Gawlers may be best known for their extensive collection of tunes in the Scots-Irish and French Canadian traditions, their extensive travels have added to the depth and wideness of their material and musical influences.  

In addition to playing fiddle and singing, Molly Gawler has been an acclaimed featured dancer with the touring company of the internationally celebrated dance company, Pilobilus.  In that capacity she has appeared on the Academy Awards, Oprah, Japanese television and Late Night with Conan O'Brien.  She has recorded an album of lullabies called Honey Dreams and is a member of the Boston-based fiddle orchestra Childsplay.

Edith Gawler fills in the Gawler ensemble with her rich low harmonies along with her banjo and fiddle playing.  She has a love for agrarian music and has traveled to Ghana with her sisters learning the djembe and a host of African songs.  She also performs and records with her husband, Bennett Konesni.  As a duo, she and Bennett play old-time fiddle and banjo music, Swedish dance tunes, and sing farmers ballads and hollers.  They teach worksongs together in a variety of settings across the country.

Elsie Gawler takes her inspiration from a new sound that incorporates the cello into folk music with a range of chops, backup rhythms and innovative chord structures. With fiddle music deeply embedded in her musical sensibilities, she delivers lively jigs and reels as easily as melancholy waltzes on her cello. She has also brought the ukulele to the Gawler family sound.  Elsie has also delved into songwriting and has composed a number of songs in the past year that are brand new but in the traditional style.

Their album, Home Again, Home Again, is a collection of songs that wonderfully captures their splendid harmonies and musical spirit. Most recently, the sisters toured the Pacific Northwest with the Childsplay fiddle orchestra.

The concert will be performed at the historic 1802 Phippsburg Congregational Church.
