Dallas' K3 Sisters Band will be returning to Opening Bell Coffee (1409 S. Lamar St. Dallas 75215) on Sun. Feb. 18 at 1 p.m. for the first of 11 free "Lunch with the K3 Sisters" monthly concerts on all 3rd Sundays through December of 2018. The creative roots of the K3 Sisters Band are sisters Kaylen, Kelsey and Kristen Kassab who have been performing as a sister trio across North Texas for over a decade. Still in their teens, their soaring vocal harmonies and multi-instrumental work on guitar, mandolin and fiddle have been a hit at intimate coffee house and eatery settings where they deliver their original love songs, Texas country, indie-pop, Celtic influenced old-world ballads and earthy instrumental compositions while people enjoy specialty foods and drinks. The girls will be joined at each show by one or two local artists who excel on banjo, dobro, Scottish pennywhistle.
The all-ages "Lunch with the K3 Sisters" concert series is co-sponsored by CCGC, a Dallas based non-profit that awards free acoustic guitars at the shows to students ages 12-16. "We are thrilled to support concerts that feature young people like the K3 Sisters who are creating new music and paying homage to the traditional techniques and sounds of acoustic stringed instruments," says Dr. Bruce Ray Kassab, president of the 5-year-old literary/music public charity. "But what is super exciting is that thanks to Opening Bell owner Pascale Hall, this year-long concert series gives us a platform from which to put a new acoustic guitar directly into the hands of needy students who are interested in helping promote, perform and preserve our American music heritage for future generations." During the teen and family-friendly shows, the baristas will pass the hat for anyone interested in making a donation to support future student grants. The public can find out how to nominate a student for a guitar grant at CCGC.biz.
