Sisters Folk Festival, known for its intimacy of performances and as one of the most well-respected music festivals in the country, is thrilled to announce the initial lineup of the annual event September 6-8, 2019. The Festival’s eleven “walkable” venues throughout beautiful downtown Sisters, Oregon has intrigued audiences for decades, earning the moniker “All the Town’s a Stage.”
This year’s lineup follows suit from last year in bringing a diverse roster, both culturally and musically to Central Oregon. The artists represent outstanding talent. Festival Creative Director Brad Tisdel and the SFF talent committee have curated a unique lineup, bringing the distinct nature of the event to light.
