Join Us for Two Great July Musical Events: Darden and Chris Williams!

DARDEN: On tour “For LOVE & HARMONY”

ONE PERFORMANCE ONLY JULY 15 at 2PM!

Darden Sisters Darden SistersYou won’t want to miss this unique performance by Darden, a dynamic four-piece ensemble of sisters. They bring an “Alternative Americana” sound to the stage.

The Darden Sisters are comprised of Selah, on the violin; Clarah, the guitarist; Havi on mandolin, and Tabbi, the bassist. All four are vocalists in the group, focusing on harmonies and musical blends.

Raised on the California Coast in a family of musicians, the Dardens grew up surrounded by musical influences from almost every genre. Originally, their vocals were backed by Grandpa Joe Tatar on honky-tonk style piano, but eventually, each of f them decided picked up instruments, and formed their own musical entity.

Each of the sisters are songwriters in the group, and now play several instruments each. They have developed a sound which has been dubbed “Alternative Americana.”

More on the Darden Sisters here.
