Fairfield Theatre Company rocks the holidays with two nights of Sister Sparrow and The Dirty Birds at StageOne.

Fairfield Theatre Company “rocks” the halls this holiday season when they welcome back Brooklyn, New York based band, Sister Sparrow and The Dirty Birds for two 7:30 p.m. shows Friday, Dec. 13 and Saturday, Dec. 14.

After their 2012 breakout year, the eight piece soul/rock outfit have soared like a phoenix out of the fire with scorching sets at some of the top music festivals and venues in the country, including Bonnaroo, Mountain Jam, the Voodoo Experience, Clearwater Jazz Holiday and the Beacon Theatre, where they got to open for Gov’t Mule last New Year’s Eve.

The band’s journey began steeped in family and life-long friendships. The dynamic singer and front-woman Sister Sparrow, Arleigh Kincheloe, first began penning tunes in the alleyways and back roads between New York City and the Catskill Mountains as a teenager. Though already aided and abetted by her harmonica-shredding brother Jackson, it was clear to her that a large, powerful band was needed to do justice to the songs she was constructing. The brother and sister team reached out to their cousin Bram, a California-bred drummer of considerable prowess, to help assemble a band of epic proportions. Bringing in childhood friends J.J. Byars (alto saxophone) and Ryan Snow (trombone), the band began to take shape and would soon call upon trumpeter Phil Rodriguez who would solidify the unstoppable force of the virtuosic Dirty Birds’ horns. Yet, that was just the beginning, and soon the rhythm section filled out with guitarist Sasha Brown and bassist Josh Meyers, who both added the thundering tandem of hard-driving, bare-knuckle grooves which that have propelled this ferocious group into stardom.

Since the band embarked on their first “flight” at the end of April 2011, with the mission of taking the country by storm, Sister Sparrow have risen to the challenge fueled by their boundless energy, that has turned quiet listening rooms into wild dance parties and established the group a rabid following of fans eager to receive a potent dose of good times.

Get ready as Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds dazzle another audience with their high-energy performance and their palpable camaraderie, undeniable talent and passion for music that has led this flock of birds to 35 states and over 150 shows for the second year in a row. Now Sister Sparrow and The Dirty Birds fly back to StageOne with their blend of seductive soul and dirty blues-rock in support of their latest EP “Flight,” produced by legendary bass player, producer, and American Idol judge, Randy Jackson. The new EP shows a more mature and well-honed soulful side to the Brooklyn, New York band that will have fans new and old cheering for more.

Get ready to dance and rock out this holiday season as Fairfield Theatre Company welcomes back Sister Sparrow and The Dirty Birds for a night that will warm up the soul even on one of the coldest nights of the year.
