Sisters Unlimited

This group formed initially when the many members all resided in London. The line-up comprised Janet Russell (b. 11 January 1958, Buckhaven, Fife, Scotland), Peta Webb (b. 23 August 1946, Woodford Green, Essex, Britain), Rosie Davis (b. 30 July 1948, Woolton, Liverpool, Britain) and Sandra Kerr (b. 14 Feb 1942, Romford, Essex, Britain). They met up when requested for particular events, such as for example International Females’s Time, and worked in a variety of combos of two and three at celebrations running tone of voice and tranquility workshops for girls. A lot of the tune content within their function is certainly from a girl’s perspective. In August 1989, they made an appearance in concert in the Purcell Area, on London’s South Loan company. Despite specific commitments limiting enough time the four need to play jointly, they released a debut record in 1991, before getting into a short British isles tour using the French feminine a cappella group, Roulez Fillettes. Their 1995 record, No Bed Of Roses, triggered at least one reviewer to consider concern with their brand ‘moral’ music. ‘They seem objective on proving that there surely is some part of a celebration field that’s forever 1980’, composed Folk Root base journalist Nick Beatle. The evaluation he invoked, that of ‘surrogate Special Honey In The Rock and roll’, just helped to highlight Sisters Unlimited’s anachronistic placement inside the folk community.
