The Bankesters Bring Bluegrass to Shelter Island

Posted on 13 January 2015

The Bankesters are a good old-fashioned family band. The parents, Phil and Dorene, started their three daughters on music lessons before they were in kindergarten, and Emily, who plays the clawhammer banjo and the fiddle in the band, has been told she used to sing herself to sleep as a baby. Harmonizing comes second nature to them, and making music is a joy they love to share.
The band will share their sound with music lovers this Saturday when Sylvester Manor presents The Bankesters bringing some of the finest bluegrass harmonies to The Shelter Island School at 7:30 p.m. The show will open with local band, Large Print Edition.

But if your wedding day was one fraught with family feuds, infighting and social pandering, chances are those are the memories that really stuck and are offered up in anecdotal form whenever the opportunity arises. After all, at the intersection of expectation and reality there lies a great tale.

For Christine Morro, that place is bucolic Sagg Pond. The coastal tidal pond is a favorite haunt of many Sag Harbor residents, but for Ms. Morro, it is the focus of her artistic expression and has been for nearly four years.
