Sara Milonovich & Daisycutter are a band of adventurous musicians from New York’s many and varied music scenes. Called “acoustic and electric, agnostic and eclectic”, it’s a whirling mix of Americana-roots-rock and jamband-worldbeat flavors. Usually a 5 or 6-piece band, they’ll bring a more “unplugged” quartet version of the group to BluSeed Studios, featuring singer/fiddler Sara Milonovich (Richard Shindell, Cathie Ryan, The McKrells, Pete Seeger), with guitarist Greg Anderson (Eileen Ivers, Whirligig, Doctor Nerve), and the stellar rhythm section of Leo Traversa (Steve Kimock, Tania Maria, Don Byron) on bass and Steve Holloway (Solas, Jill Sobule, Riverdance) on drums and percussion.
Sara is an award-winning fiddler, singer, songwriter and tunesmith who has been performing throughout the US and Europe as a solo artist, bandleader, and in various collaborations in the roots, folk-rock, bluegrass, Celtic, and Appalachian music scenes. She has performed and recorded with artists such as Pete Seeger (on his 2009 Grammy-winning album, At 89), Richard Shindell, Cathie Ryan, Anne Hills, and Antje Duvekot, among others. From 1999 – 2002 she toured the US and Ireland as a member of the Celtic/bluegrass/roots band The McKrells.
“A deft mix of literate folk, plaintive balladry, and plenty of modern-day ass-kicking.”
“There’s more bubbling under the surface than meets the eye… a feel-good, all-inclusive vibe almost guaranteed to bring a smile to one’s face.”
