JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Continuing the sustainable and environmental stewardship themes of last month’s Earth Day, the annual EcoFair is this Saturday. Music has long been a part of the festivities, and this year will feature staples of the local music scene—Sister Karee & the Other Brothers along with mayor and singer-songwriter Pete Muldooon.

It will be great to see Karee Miller Jaeger (of The Miller Sisters) back on stage fronting a new country/soul/rock project, Sister Karee & the Other Brothers, with members of her former party band Mandatory Air. Karee’s sister, Candice, passed away in July of 2018, and according to the band’s bio, “after much soul searching, Karee decided to continue her journey as a performing artist.”

Karee brings a powerful voice and a charismatic stage presence, which The Miller Sisters had been noted for. The Other Brothers—Justin Smith (guitar/vocals), John Pansewicz (guitar), Marshall Davis (bass), Jason Baggett (drums) and Mac Munroe (percussion)—have been playing together for well beyond a decade and have a chemistry of their own.

Pete Muldoon—who also performs with outlaw country band Major Zephyr—unpacked his debut solo release, The Decent, last year. A piano-based singer-songwriter album of original material, the eight-song set broaches the subjects of love lost, distant love, loneliness and the complexities of relationships. It’s a creative diversion from the mandatory dance band music that has shaped many of Muldoon’s setlists at local venues. A new release in already in the works for this summer. For this set, he’ll be joined by Shawn Fleming (drums), Jeff Eidemiller (guitar), and the aforementioned Davis (bass).

EcoFair, 12 to 5 p.m. Saturday at Snow King Ball Field. Admission is free with a suggested donation of $5 to help cover event costs.
