The Baird Sisters



Influenced by Appalachian mountain music, contemporary outsider folk, and Library of Congress recordings of their great-great uncle, I.G. Greer, sisters Laura and Meg Baird have been performing together since 2001.

Pairing their sibling harmonies with intimate acoustic guitar and banjo playing, their collection of songs includes haunting versions of traditional favorites, ballads and original compositions. Meg is also a founding member of Espers and recently released her second solo album, Seasons on Earth, on Drag City.
