All Folked Up with The Turnips, The Wounded Healers and No Good Sister

All Folked Up with The Turnips, The Wounded Healers and No Good Sisters

Join us for a night of folk and Americana with The Wounded Healers, the Turnips and No Good Sister.

The Turnips

The Turnips originated in 1978 as Gene Smith and Ernie Tokay. Over the years many friends have joined the Turnips in performance and on recordings. The Turnips are dedicated to originality in their music and the three-part vocal harmony style. Todays Turnips are singers/songwriters Gene Smith, Ernie Tokay, Sarah Napolitan, and backed by long time friends and compadres Lee Vuotto and John Strauss. The Turnips above all else are fun! At least until one of their well-written songs comes along to break your heart!

The Wounded Healers

The Wounded Healers are an Americana band featuring the voice and songs of Jess McDowell. Traces of vintage country, folk, and bluegrass give their songs a timeless feel. The band includes Philadelphia area musicians Jess McDowell (vocals, rhythm guitar), Jason Parish (lead guitar), Michele Lynn (bass), Billy Dominic (fiddle), and JC Bell (mandolin).

No Good Sister

No Good Sister is a Rootsy-Bluesy Americana vocal trio taking the Philadelphia music scene by storm.

In the Fall of 2012, a mom, a teacher, and a waitress, decided to turn their mutual admiration for each other’s music, writing and voices into a musical project that would both showcase them as individuals, but especially highlight their deep affinity for tight 3-part harmonies.
Since the formation of No Good Sister, just under two years ago, they have solidly found their place in the Philly music scene by frequently performing in Philadelphia's most popular music venues: World Cafe Live, both in Philadelphia and Wilmington, Boot & Saddle, The Tin Angel, Fergie’s Pub, The Fire, Underground Arts, Milkboy Philly, Ortliebs, The Trocadero, Silk City to name just a few, and appear regularly in the Four Seasons Lounge.

Live radio appearances include WXPN’s Folk Show with Gene Shay, “Live from the Kelly Writer’s House” moderated by Michaela Majoun, Dan Reed's "Like a Version"; "Hometown Heroes" on Wilmington's 93.7 WSTW, "Radio Nowhere" with Joltin' Joe on New Jersey's WMSC 90.7FM - to name just a FEW! Radio stations up and down the East Coast have been spinning their first self titled EP, produced EP (produced by their lap-steel player, Mike "Slo-mo" Brenner), and it has even had several spins in the UK.
In January of 2014, they were selected by World Cafe Live at The Queen as the Unsung Hearo standout performer of 2013, and won a slot in’s 2014 SXSW showcase. Rock On Philly included their single "Look Good on Paper" on their Best of Philly 2014 Playlist.

2015 is off to a great start with a full calendar of tour dates, and have been hailed as "Artist to Watch for 2015" by 21st Century Media's David Wannop. The coming year will see No Good Sister touring quite a bit more, after having played several successful shows in New York City, Washington, DC, Wilmington, DE, and the surrounding Philadelphia suburbs in 2014.
