The Ultimate Lady Hang
Like many other Boston folk acts with phenomenal personnel pairings, you can trace this group's beginnings to Club Passim's campfire. festival. During the 2016 Memorial Day campfire., Katie Martucci of The Ladles, Isa Burke & Ellie Buckland of Lula Wiles, Aurora Birch, and Rachel Sumner of Twisted Pine came together to close out the festival (lovingly dubbed The Ultimate Lady Hang), with an "in-the-round", wherein each brought songs, original and not, arranged for solo, duo and group settings. It was good. So good, that this was repeated for the Labor Day campfire. festival bringing Holly McGarry of Honeysuckle and Deni Hlavinka of The Western Den into the rotation for the round.
When all seven remarkable women take the stage together, each bringing a smorgasbord of well crafted songs and piles of different instruments (in the past, all manner of guitars, fiddle, mandolin, flute, clarinets, banjos, ukuleles, and even a harmonium have graced the stage -- nothing is off limits), audiences understand that anything is possible.
Their most recent show benefited Planned Parenthood Action, an organization each of the ladies strongly believes in and supports. Watch for future happenings!
