Crowd Pleasing Shout Sister Shout
A capacity crowd arrived early to see Shout Sister Shout on June 17. It’s easy to understand why. Rachael Davis’ silky and sultry voice combined with the rich arrangements and excellent musicianship of Steppin’ In It made for a concert no one wanted to end.
Shout Sister Shout was formed in 2006 by the band Steppin' In It and the singer Rachael Davis, all of whom are well known in the folk scene and who have played double-bills on many occasions. It was their mutual love for old instruments, old radio and old-time jazz that led to Shout Sister Shout (named for a song by Sister Rosetta Sharpe).
This marked the one-year anniversary of concerts at KPL. We kicked off the series in 2008 with Steppin’ In It; Rachael (with Jesse Lee Mason) followed soon after in August, and we're glad to welcome all of them back. Take a look at recordings from previous concerts in our monthly series. You'll also find a great collection of photos from the KPL show on the official Shout Sister Shout website!
