The Whipstitch Sallies / Bio

Indianapolis paper NUVO calls The Whipstitch Sallies “bluegrass rockers with panache.” Four women command the stage with their electrifying presence, traditional instruments, and tight harmonies. Allie Burbrink drives the rhythm on open-back banjo and guitar while Kat Erickson holds down the groove on upright bass. Sam Roberts’ blistering mandolin licks and Katie Burk’s spirited fiddle leads kick up an exuberant racket that’s rooted in mountain music but informed by styles from country and jazz to indie rock. Their 2013 EP Hand ‘Em Over was voted Best New Album in the Brown County Music Awards. Go see them as soon as you can!
