The Solar Sisters are singer- songwriters Jeanne Sable and Valerie Piedmont who perform “eco folk music”. Accompanied by Jeanne’s finger-style guitar playing, the Solar Sisters sing about the environment and sustainable living, issues of the day, and rural life. Their songs consist of beautiful harmonies and a sense of optimism – and vary between the personal, the political and stories about others.
In addition to their music writing and performing, Valerie and Jeanne are both involved with The Sustainability Project, a nonprofit founded in 2000 promoting care for the environment and community. Valerie is the Executive Director; Jeanne is on the Advisory Board. The Sustainability Project holds its 10th Annual Seed Celebration and Community Fair on Saturday at the Mole Hill Theatre. Here you can attend workshops, exhibits, demonstrations, and a seed sale, purchase food from a café, and see the Solar Sisters perform. Here is a sample of what you might hear; this is the Solar Sister’s performance on Youtube of Who Counts, written by Jeanne Sable, about the problems with electronic voting machines.
The Solar Sisters have been performing together for about a decade throughout the Monadnock region. They are currently working on a CD. For a hint of spring that is sure to come, an opportunity for meaningful conversation, and a concert of fine music, join the Solar Sisters at the Community Fair.
