The Center for the Arts presents Sister Sparrow and The Dirty Birds
Brooklyn-based rocker Arleigh Kinchelow presides over Sister Sparrow and The Dirty Birds with intensity and a smoldering bluesy voice. The "hard soul collective" has engendered passion from both the press and the people because "It’s loud, fun, and it’s supposed to make you feel good," says Arleigh. "That’s the goal." Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds accomplish that goal tenfold with a saucy sonic brew of rock, blues, gospel, and soul.
Since forming in 2008, the group has performed more than 600 shows, released two full-length albums and an EP produced by Randy Jackson (American Idol), and enchanted tastemakers ranging from The Wall Street Journal and LA Times to Glamour, USA Today, and The New Yorker. They have shared the stage with such heavyweights as Gov’t Mule, Dr. John, Trombone Shorty, The Avett Brothers, Counting Crows, and Galactic, and have turned audiences into believers through appearances on the festival circuit at Bonnaroo, Firefly, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Voodoo Music Experience and many more.
