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!

Hey, you seem like you could use some music and entertainment this weekend, and maybe just being in the company of some cool people. Consider the latest installment of SUNSETS AT GREAT SCOTT, on Sunday, November 20th, at 4pm. The line-up includes the Story Pirates, The Silver Lake Chorus, touring Nashville twosome Pilgrim, singer-songwriter Jesse Macht (your host), and our personal favorites…
THE SAPPHIRE SISTERS, Lost Moon Radio’s own beloved female folk duo (in a performance featuring Martha Marion, Jen Burton, Michael Wells, Dylan Ris, and Lauren Flans), who promise to surround your troubled heart in waves of pulsing harmony and sisterhood.
It’s all happening in a beautiful backyard-with-a-view in Echo Park, and it’s all FREE (thanks to a sponsorship from Airstream). There’s even free valet, or you can get 20% off a Lyft ride to and/or from the show with the code SSAGS. Warm clothes, picnic blankets, and beach chairs are encouraged.
Doesn’t that sound like a pretty great way to round out your weekend? More details here.
