Third Thyme's the Charm

Their long awaited third CD, adding Mary Crowell to the lineup. The folk sound gets jazzier while the Sisters' signature vocal harmonies weave through songs of magick, mythology, love, logic puzzles, real life, books, TV, and movies.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The long awaited third CD from Three Weird Sisters is the first to feature their current performing lineup. Founding Sister Gwen Knighton upped and moved to England to marry a crazy Irishman, so Mary Crowell has joined the band to bring her own cool jazz flavor to the mix.

The Sisters' signature vocal harmonies remain the centerpiece of their style, weaving through an eclectic mix of subjects. Myths and legends get their attention on "Pomegranate Tango" and "Galatea (and Pygmalion)"; magick and its manifestations are the focus of "Blue Spell" and "Witch of the Wood"; SF and fantasy stories, movies, and TV take the spolight in "I Knew a Guy Once", "These Two" (inspired by the Joss Whedon series Firefly), and the torchy paen to JRR Tolkien's (well, Peter Jackson and Orlando Bloom's) "Legolas"; life, love, and legacy are explored in "Tea", "Make Love Stay", "Inner Seasons", and "On This Good Day" - with the cunningly wrought logic puzzle "Time Share Whorehouse" adding a little mental exercise along the way.

Brenda Sutton, an acclaimed bodhrán player, also brings guitar and congas to the mix. Teresa Powell plays electric upright bass, guitar, and the notorious vibroslap. Dr. Mary Crowell, pianist extraordinaire, has also been known to play harmonica and clarinet when the mood strikes her. All three women write music and sing, specializing in their own special brand of three-part harmony.

Three Weird Sisters play the folk clubs, music fests, gatherings, and conventions near their home base of Atlanta, Georgia. They've branched out with appearances as far away as Los Angeles and San Francisco, California, Salt Lake City, Utah, Houston, Texas, and Columbus, Ohio as the Guests of Honor for OVFF 2001 (the Ohio Valley Filk Fest.), where they were recipients of a Pegasus Award for Best Performer. In 2005, they were honored to perform to an enthusiastic audience at the 63rd Annual World Science Fiction Convention in Glasgow, Scotland.

In 2001, the Sisters released their debut CD, Rite the First Time, which has gone through its second pressing, and has received excellent reviews and radio play in the US, Canada, UK, Virgin Islands, Norway, and even Romania! Their second CD, Hair of the Frog, was released in 2004. The Three Weird Sisters released their most recent album, Third Time’s the Charm, in August of 2012.

Together these women make a unique blend of instruments and voices described as "what the Carter family would have sounded like if they'd done filk / folk / Celtic / blues / insert music type." They love singing together, and that's evident in the delivery of their material. Come listen to them and you too may become a "Weirdo" for Three Weird Sisters.

Loving this album
I am loving this album. It's easy to put it on in the car and then just let it loop for days on end. The Sisters' musical prowess is evident on each and every track, from Mary's piano expertise to Brenda's beautifully-crafted lyrics and Teresa's cool, smoky vocals, and sure to delight. This latest offering makes me eager for the fourth CD!
