Since 2008 sisters Ari and Mia Friedman have toured all across the U.S and Australia and are both graduates of New England Conservatory’s cutting edge Contemporary Improvisation department. They’ve performed alongside Sarah Jarosz, opened for the likes of Cheryl Wheeler and Catie Curtis, and played at venues such as Shalin Liu Performing Arts Center, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival’s Mainstage Emerging Artist Showcase, Club Passim, the Parlor Room, New Bedford Folk Festival, and Jordan Hall.

Both award winning songwriters, Mia’s song Across the Water won the 2010 John Lennon Songwriting Contest in the folk category, and Ari’s song Old Man was a semi-finalist for the 2016 International Songwriting Competition.

Ari & Mia kickoff a ten-date tour of the Maritime Provinces on March 4 in Moncton with dates in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. The duo will be touring in support of their forthcoming album Sew The City which will be available March 1, 2019.
