"New England's Americana Sister Act ? Ari & Mia Friedman, describing themselves as a "chamber folk ? duo, visit from Boston with their acclaimed vocal harmonies and fiddle, cello and banjo. No Depression magazine writes: "Ari & Mia reference the styles of Southern and Northeastern fiddle music and the early American songbook to create a realm where their own compositions cross paths with older traditions. Their stylish and sophisticated music honors the sounds of Appalachian cottages, rural dance floors, and urban concert halls… Treading the edges of traditional folk in a more faithful manner, they share the lyrical wizardry of '70s bands Steeleye Span, Tir-na-Nog, and the Incredible String Band, with searing harmony as good as The Beach Boys. The sisters sing in unison like two violins. ? Touring since 2008, the two graduates of the New England Conservatory have opened for Cheryl Wheeler, performed with Sarah Jarosz, and won the 2010 John Lennon Songwriting Contest in the folk category. If you like their music at the Friday Night Dance at Glen Echo on April 20, come to Janie Meneely's for an encore over Sunday brunch. $15 donation suggested. Brunch at 11, concert at noon!
