ABOUT THE NIELDS

Nerissa and Katryna Nields are a favorite of the Hilltown Family Variety Show, with their family CD’s All Together Singing in the Kitchen and their newest release, Rock all Day, Rock all Night.  Their love for music dates back to when they were just a few years older than the children attending Nonotuck Community School. (Nerissa’s daughter, Lila, age 4, goes to school at Nonotuck.) Both sisters remember singing in the kitchen and the back seat of the family car. “I knew I wanted to be a singer and songwriter from the time I was 7,” explains Nerissa. “I remember I wrote my first song that I was really proud of when I was 13, and right away I had a harmony for it, so I dragged Katryna out of her room and taught her the harmony.” And the rest, as the saying goes, is history. For two decades (since 1991), they have been the darlings of the coffeehouse/festival scene, with tunes ranging from off-the-hook idiosyncratic to kicking to heartbreaking. Today they are more than singing sisters — they are mothers who love to explore the impact their own children have on their writing and music. (Their new book titled All Together Singing in the Kitchen: The Musical Family, about How To and Why To make music with your family, is due out in 2011.)

Nerrissa and Katryna have also created and teach HooteNanny, a music class in the valley for children up to the age if five (and their grown ups).  Nerissa and Katryna share their encyclopedic knowledge and great love of folk music by handpicking favorite classics and composing new songs.  For information about HooteNanny classes or to get into a class starting the first week of April, write to hootenannymusicclass@gmail.com.
