Sister Neapolitan

Sister Neapolitan is made up of three songwriters: Megan Ellsworth from the Cascade Mountains of Sisters, Oregon, Katie Smith from the desert in Tri-Cities, Washington, and Alana Margolis from the farmer's town of Macungie, Pennsylvania. These three women met at CU Denver in the songwriting program, and their love of harmony and folk music is what brought their creativity and souls together.
The trio has been featured on Swallowhillmusic.org, 303 Magazine, and KGNU radio. The three songstresses have played the Sisters Folk Festival, Underground Music Showcase and the SXSW Women Crush Music Showcase in Austin, TX. They have also been on one self-routed tour down the West Coast and another routed around Nashville, TN. The ice cream themed band has played alongside bands the likes of Kinesics, Anthony Ruptak, Paul Dehaven (formerly of Paper Bird), David Beckingham and Avenhart. Sister Neapolitan plans to release their debut album within the next year and plans on an East coast tour in the summer of 2020. Often referred to as the female Crosby, Stills, and Nash, they have also been compared to Wailin' Jenny's and Joseph. Bringing storytelling to their fingertips and lyrics, Sister Neapolitan is a band to look out for.
