Sharon Knight - Neofolk Romantique

San Francisco songstress Sharon Knight is a Celtic folk singer in leather armbands. She plays octave mandolin as if it were an electric guitar and sings as though she means to summon a storm. Accompanied by longtime collaborator Winter, they craft a sound both ethereal and fierce, combining gutsy bravado with delicate beauty, adding a hearty dose of fantastical lyrics and an obvious love of storytelling in a Celtic-inspired style they call “Neofolk Romantique”. This often sounds less Celtic and more “Folktales that ran away with the Faeries at the turn of the century and took cover in an old trunk bound for the circus, which was then commandeered by pirates.” This suits them fine.

SJ Tucker plays on the most recent recording, "Portals".
