Lydia, Rose, Nora, Sarah and Ariel Parkington were raised in a wildly musical household where every room sounded with a spark of song, naturally inspiring their individual hearts and hands to find their own instrumental avenues. Lydia plays cello. Rose plays guitar and piano. Ariel, Sarah and Nora play violin and viola. After performing individually in everything from string quartets to symphonies to eclectic rock bands, and earning a total of seven degrees from conservatory and university, the Parkington Sisters decided in 2005 to start performing together on the salty streets of Provincetown. Their music is embodied by vibrant string arrangements combined with tight, interwoven five-part vocal harmonies and gorgeous, blending voices. Five dynamic voices sing original music accompanied by five confident instruments, creating an aural experience that is both magnetic in its delivery and genuine in its emotional impact.
The Parkington Sisters have been guest artists on recordings by The Spring Standards, Sonya Kitchell and Dub Trio and recently, recorded their debut album at New York City's Avatar Studios and Studio G with engineer/producer Joel Hamilton (Elvis Costello,Tom Waits). Their new album "Till Voices Wake Us" is available on iTunes. The Parkington Sisters are currently touring the Northeast with the Dropkick Murphys.
