The Red-Headed Strangers

$6 to $8. 314-773-3363.

Named after Willie Nelson's best album, local group the Red-Headed Strangers knows something about classic country songwriting and even more about simple rootsy melodies. The four Sullivan siblings (Brian, Maureen, Dan and Tim) buoy one another with an inborn sense of harmony on the group's debut album, Come On In. Along with their bandmates, the Sullivans use acoustic guitars, piano, fiddle and light drums to round out their folksy songs, which range from breezy and sunny to slightly overcast and foreboding. You might be jealous that so much musical talent is bound up in one household, but be happy that the Sullivans have joined forces and, with the release of Come On In, invited you to be part of the family.
