The Sapphire Sisters

Since the late ’90s, The Sapphire Sisters’ Daughters of Our Mothers Festival has provided an annual opportunity for female-identifying musicians to find strength in harmony and sisterhood in song. And the coming together of this sacred community of esoteric folk musicians may never have been so important as it is this year. Just read the news, you guys. Now is a time for us to be marching, joining hands, setting cop cars on fire, and above all lifting our voices to sing. Because whether you’re a son, a daughter, a sister, a grandmother, or a father – we’re all daughters of our mothers.

This year’s line-up includes headliners The Sapphire Sisters, with special guests January Schonfeld and more!

Big news! (If you are a Lost Moon fan and enjoy the medium of television.) TruTV has just announced the debut of a new half-hour series, Rachel Dratch’s Late Night Snack, presenting “a carousel of premium comedy segments curated by and premiering on TruTV.”

These segments include limo-based relationship advice from Alec Baldwin, a long-awaited star vehicle for Benjamin the Cat, and “Passive Aggressive History,” a painstakingly researched* series of docudramas chronicling every eye roll, backhanded compliment, and clench-toothed smile behind the iconic events that shaped our world — written by and starring the cast of Lost Moon Radio.

That’s us, you guys! We’re going to be on this show! On television! Adjacent to but not actually interacting with Alec Baldwin!

Honestly, we’re as surprised as you are. More details, teaser images, etc. coming soon. Late Night Snack premieres Thursday, March 3rd, at 11 p.m Eastern/Pacific, right after Those Who Can’t. So set your VCR’s and mark your paper calendars or whatever.

*By “painstakingly researched,” we mean 100% made-up.

In the spirit of the month of love, we’re excited to premiere our new video “You’re A Virgin,” starring Dan Oster and Lauren Flans, directed by the talented Kat Vondy! Be sure to share on all the social medias and, if you haven’t already, subscribe to LOST MOON RADIO on YouTube! And stay tuned for some exciting news on what we’ve been up to since the New Year!

And should this video only whet your appetite for more sensual Lost Moon Radio offerings as we approach the most romantic of weekends, we went ahead and put together a Valentine’s Day Playlist of our holiday-appropriate material. Enjoy it with someone you love.
