Three Weird Sisters (band)

Three Weird Sisters is a band from Atlanta, Georgia. The group sings Filk music (science fiction/fantasy folk music) with harp, double bass, guitar, and bodhran accompaniment. Their albums include Hair of the Frog and Rite the First Time.

The original members consisted of Gwen Knighton, Brenda Sinclair Sutton, and Teresa Gibson Powell. In 2004 Gwen Knighton married Joe Raftery and moved to live with him in England. Mary Crowell joined the band late 2004, making it possible for the band to perform in Gwen's absence. However, Gwen still continues to collaborate with the band.

In 2002 they won they won two Pegasus Awards for Best Performer and Best Chilling/Spine-Tingling Song with "In A Gown Too Blue", as well as being nominated for Best Song That Tells A Story with "Song of Fey Cross".

This group was approached by Warner Bros. for permission to use their name in the movie "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire", but negotiations were dropped when the Canadian band Wyrd Sisters sued the films studio to prevent the reference from being made.
