Profiles In Protest: How the Bay’s music community is responding to the inauguration

After the 2016 election, the nation seemed sharply divided. With inauguration day rapidly approaching, we wanted to give musicians from our community a space to voice how they felt about the election results. Some were upset that the candidate with fewer popular votes won the presidency, some were upset at others for not voting, and some did not accept the results. Vast groups of citizens took to the streets to protest, with a number of marches and rallies taking place in the Bay Area. As a nonprofit devoted to fostering music in the Bay, we celebrate the self-expression that is [...]

The T Sisters (photo: Souls of San Francisco) The T Sisters (Chloe, Rachel, and Erika Tietjen) are three sisters (two twins and one not) who make timeless folky tunes that are as sweet as they are sassy.
