MaMuse returns to Nevada County

From those sweet harmonies of the stage to that soft sway of the room, a tenderness lives between MaMuse and their audience. It is that precious communion of sharing roots music that bonds strangers, draws loved ones close, suspends applause, and lifts a house to its feet.

Singing with a voice of heritage, the songstress duo of Sarah Nutting and Karisha Longaker is dedicated to uplifting community through song and joy.

With a hauntingly rich a capella presence, these alto-sopranos weave a blend of whimsy and emotional depth. This texture is spun with upright bass, mandolin, bazuki, guitar, flute, kalimba, ankle bells, train whistles, gospel claps, jazz snaps, laughter, calls, response, and a unicycle.

In the turn of only two seasons, MaMuse has toured concert halls across the country en route to the famous Wish Bone Studios in Muscle Shoals, Ala., where they recorded their first full length album All The Way.

The dynamic and genuine following of fans knows Ma music is soul music. From the first verse, everyone seems ready to return, and ready to celebrate. MaMuse splashed Atlanta audiences when they placed in the finals of the bi-annual Open Mic Shootout at the legendary singer-songwriter venue, Eddie’s Attic.

A sound as pure as the talent and intention given to it, this music speaks from the quiet places of our lives.
