Sugar by the Pound

Sugar by the Pound came together in the Spring of 2014 in The Santa Cruz Mountains of California and is one of the only all-female bluegrass bands, not only in the area, but for miles around. Their combination of traditional bluegrass music, country-style blues, honky tonk, and classical influences hits home with a wide audience and has made the group a perfect fit for playing festivals, markets, churches, barn dances, farm tours, clubs, breweries, and and private parties throughout California and beyond.. The players–Erin Valdivia on vocals and guitar, Cristy Aloysi on vocals, mandolin and guitar, Sarah Farrell Mackassey on vocals and bass, and Alison Steele on vocals and banjo are classically trained musicians as well as campfire poets prior to forming the band. From California, New York, Indiana, and Virginia, Sugar by the Pound brings East and West Coast sounds together forming something truly unique yet wonderfully nostalgic.
