For nearly two decades, the Catskill Mountains hid rock 'n' roll's best kept secret. Then one day, singer and songwriter Arleigh Kincheloe said goodbye to her hometown hideaway and moved to New York City to start the hard soul collective, Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds. “Our music is loud, fun and it's supposed to make you feel good,” she declares. “That's the goal.” Since forming in 2011, the group has played 150+ shows a year all across the US and Canada. Their list of festival appearances includes Bonnaroo, Firefly, Mountain Jam, Telluride Jazz Festival, Harvest Jazz Festival, Austin City Limits and more.
