Homegrown Folk Revival

By Bradley Weinholtz

Nestled in the Rocky Mountains foothills and surrounded by forest lies the town of Fort Collins, Colorado. Rich with history and infused with a vibrant cultural scene, it’s home to Colorado State University and somewhat ironically was one of the towns that inspired the design of Disneyland’s Main Street, U.S.A. It’s also home to SHEL—the four Holbrook sisters—whose songs offer a bewitching brew of Celtic, folk, and rock elements. The precision of classical training coupled with unerring instincts for weaving together rootsy folk and more forceful rock threads into haunting songs positions this quartet for big things.
