Like a folk-Celtic Ramones, the players of Searson
use the same last name and could pass for siblings, but they're really just bandmates. The Ontario-based kindred spirits exude an infectious energy, putting on a dervish of a show. Singer-guitarist (and aspiring bagpiper) Mike backs the four comely sisters Searson, all rather competent step dancers who, between them, play piano, mandolin, bass, bodhran, and fiddle. Want to meet the band? Strike up a conversation about Alias, Shrek, or The Wonder Years.
