The Surprising Persisting Spirit of Supersister
"Born in the Netherlands of the roaring sixties, Supersister became a local legend in the early seventies with their first single 'She Was Naked,' followed by 4 remarkable albums that firmly established their unique place in the music scene.
"In the years leading up to 1974 the group continued to develop their new and very own language of European oriented pop music. They were received well internationally by the likes of John Peel and found themselves working with trendsetting organizations like the Netherlands Dance Theatre.
"Supersister's reappearance at LA Progfest in 2000, followed by the live DVD Supersisterious (live in Amsterdam), proved that their music didn't lose a bit of its crispy edge. The unexpected tragic loss of flutist Sacha van Geest in that same year caused this successful reunion to come to a sudden end.
"Now some 10 years later, with Sacha very much in mind and for the sake of the timeless spirit and humor that will always be part of Supersister live performances, Supersister will appear as a trio* at NEARfest 2011.
"It is with this spirit that we here at the home offices of NEARfest proudly welcome Supersister to the stage of Baker Hall this coming June. Be sure to have your multicolored glasses on for band #3 on Sunday as Supersister is sure to light up the stage.
