Super Saturated Sugar StringsWeek 2 - Saturday September 6:

The Super Saturated Sugar Strings

Based out of Anchorage, Alaska, the Sugar Strings are a high-energy, harmonious blend of piano, violin, cello, guitar, and odd percussion, creating the sound of a sweet and funky foot-stomping symphony.

“They have a sound that is a delightful combination of rock n’ roll and Eastern European folk. They are made for hip swaying and moonshine swigging.” — Daniella Cortez, Anchorage Press 2012

Tickets $10 DAC member / $12 General admission
