HOME-STYLE BLUEGRASS – Bluegrass, Gospel, Country & Folk
This band – together since 2005 – has made a real name for itself in the Vancouver/Portland acoustic music scene. Collectively these women have decades of experience playing and singing in harmony. MISTY MAMAS serve up Home-Style bluegrass filled with powerful harmonies, traditional and original songs as well as tasty instrumentals combining the American genres of bluegrass, old time, gospel, folk and country music. Family friendly, the band can include interactive songs that engage kids as well as adults. The MISTY MAMAS are Katherine Nitsch (vocals & guitar), April Parker (vocals, mandolin, accordion) and Eileen Rocci (vocals & upright bass).The band got its name from Carol Harley, founding member of the Misty Mamas and the very popular local Americana Band, Misty River. Carol Harley has retired from the band and is enjoying being a grandma!
Eager to connect with their audience, the Misty Mamas tailor performances that not only entertain but educate as well. You might hear historical secrets and local lore woven into the music. Timeless melodies and heartfelt lyrics are laced tightly together creating a musical experience rich with history, steeped in tradition and performed with character and exuberance! Released March 2009, Misty Mamas’ CD, Wild Rose of the Mountain, genuinely captures the essence of these musicians on stage. Misty Mamas released their 2nd cd, Come On Home in May 2018.
