The Saturdays bring their unique sound and tight three-part harmonies, stringed instruments, and world percussion to Sanctuary in Maynard. Yes, The Saturdays . . . on a Thursday.
A five-piece acoustic band that has played the Metro West area for more than a decade, they put their soulful spin on originals and songs from contemporary folk, Bluegrass, and Americana.
Karen Lincoln Wilber (vocals, guitar, banjo) first started performing as a lead singer in the 1990’s Boston Bluegrass scene with the band Willow Creek, and then with the award-winning band Waystation. She has recorded with both Waystation and songwriter Rick Lang, as well as lending backing vocals on many other projects.
Sally Marshall Griffin (vocals, guitar) began performing as a blues rock vocalist in her brother’s band, The Bruce Marshall Group, and has lent vocal tracks on several of his albums. Some of her musical heroes are Patti Griffin, Shawn Colvin, Lucinda Williams, and Brandi Carlile.
Steve Griffin (percussion, bass, harmonica, and vocals) is known for his extensive collection of percussion instruments, soulful baritone, and being married to Sally (not listed in order of importance).
Peter Senghas (guitar, bass, mandolin, dobro, and keys) enjoys all things musical and has been with the Saturdays since the beginning.
Dave Bull (guitar, vocals, and harmonica) picked up the guitar at the age of 11 and hasn’t put it down since, drawing inspiration from a wide range of rock and folk styles including the Beatles (of course), Tom Petty, Van Morrison, Aztec-Two Step, and Jason Isbell.
