MEGAN “BIRD” SIEBERG – In an international effort, Leith Sharp, Jenny Urban and Megan “Bird” Sieberg blend the sounds of Australian Folk with the sincere music and rhythm of the midwest. Sieberg and Urban came together in August 2011 to play for Andersonville’s outdoor Women in Music Festival, combining original guitar and vocals with the unique sound of Cajon.
