Friends, Fans, Family -
It is with a sweet sadness that the Stairwell Sisters announce our Farewell Concert coming up Wednesday May 15 at Strings in Oakland. We've had a momentous 14 years together, seen so much and grown into our lives, together. The time has come to admit, much as we love the music we make, and each others' company, other desires and obligations are keeping us from growing as a band. We look forward to sharing our music with our hometown crowd one more time...and down the road, at a reunion in the future! Please join us!
Your Sisters -- Evie, Lisa, Stephanie, Martha, Sue
• WEDS, MAY 15
Stairwell Sisters Say Farewell

Strings is an intimate house concert-type venue, with no sign, just look for the address. There are no advance tickets - first-come first-served. People bring snacks to share, and likely we'll have a CAKE!
...and the gals play on...
LISA still plays with the Crooked Jades, and has a design business, which you've seen all over our CDs and website. She's been getting into photography and designing books. Check out her new WEBSITE! EVIE

MARTHA plays with the Knuckle Knockers, the Earl White Band and Duo Pizzicato, Fridays at Liberty Wine Bar in San Francisco. She continues fighting for the rights of public workers, and general humanity, with endless energy. Her immediate goal is "stopping the KeystoneXL pipeline to save the planet from irreversible climate catastrophe." SUE is excited about her design position at the Exploratorium, the hands-on museum of science, art and human perception. Currently deeply involved in their move to the world's largest green building, on Pier 15/17 San Francisco, Sue is looking forward to playing music again, once the dust settles.
STEPHANIE continues her work in public health, and has been taking it personally, upping her own running ante. Training for longer runs, she also is making wine from scratch with her husband, and wrestling her loving pup, Ruffian.
