SISTERS is an orchestra of two, and their togetherness is infectious. The Seattle duo has opened for Allen Stone at Chateau Ste Michelle and played the inaugural Fisherman's Village Music Festival. Their lead singles, “Back 2 U” and “Buzzard”, were licensed by Starbucks, and within their first year, they were booked at Sasquatch Music Festival, Bumbershoot and Capitol Hill Block Party.

The series showcases three of the most exciting and dangerous rodeo disciplines: Bareback Riding, Saddle Bronc Riding and Bull Riding. In Bareback Riding, the cowboy must keep one hand in the rigging and one hand in the air. In Saddle Bronc, the cowboy must keep both feet in the stirrups, one hand on the bronc reign and one hand in the air. In Bull Riding, the cowboy must have one hand in the bull rope and one hand in the air.
For each of the three disciplines, half of the score comes from the cowboy’s ability to ride well while the other half comes from the bucking performance of the animal. The most successful cowboys anticipate and follow the movements of the animal to perfection.
