Big Sky Quartet is an original four piece roots/folk music act based in Central Pennsylvania. The members of the band all bring a shared love of music and passion for performing to the group. Sarah Fiore is the bands’ songwriter and guitarist. She has been writing melody, lyrics, and guitar for the act since 2008 and continues to write and grow as an artist over the years by dedicating her insight and passion for songwriting and collaborating. On vocals, accordion, penny whistle, and autoharp, Jason Whetstone brings a depth of musical genius to the group with his professional background in sound engineering and years of experience in theater, singing, and musical collaborations. He is a mastermind when building harmonies with the group and his ability to play multiple instruments throughout performances is a joy for audiences to experience.  On drums, Kelly McClain is one of the founding members of the group. He brings a unique and powerful energy to the drum kit and lifts the music up to another level with his talents. Entirely self taught, Kelly brings his passion for music in the styles of blues and roots music to the group. On vocals and hand percussion is Jennifer Hara. Her deep love of moving people through music is easily seen and felt on stage with her passionate and powerful voice, and her energy throughout the performances. All four members come together to bring you music that has been called ‘beautiful, deep, uplifting, and moving’, and the harmonies have been recognized as the best in the area, winning the award of ‘Best Trio’ for the Central PA Hall of Fame in 2020 under the former band name of 'Indian Summer Jars'.
