THE PARKINGTON SISTERS Born and raised in nearby Wellfleet, the Parkington Sisters grew up in a home teeming with music. They can’t agree on exactly when they transformed from musically talented siblings into “The Parkington Sisters,” but some say it was in 2005, when they cut their teeth performing as a band on the streets of Provincetown. Since then, their career has taken off– they have two EPs and two full-length albums to their name, and have shared the stage with the likes of Mavis Staples, Bruce Springsteen, and the Dropkick Murphys. Incredibly adaptable, the harmonizing indie-folk trio feels just as at home onstage at the House of Blues as they do at the Wellfleet Public Library. That’s the thing about the Parkington Sisters– with their “rich tapestry of folk and classical influences” (The Boston Globe), incredible musical chops, and charming personalities, these sisters appeal to all.
...their music is not unlike the dualities of living on the Cape. Their live show captures the energy and intensity of a summer teeming with tourists and full of bright sunny days. Once you delve into the songs, though, you find the darkness and stark serenity of winter in a seaside town. BOSTON GLOBE
Together, they have a dynamic stage presence that’s at once harmony-laden and dark– equally at home in clubs, theaters, and symphony halls. NPR
