Dynamic folk trio Joseph’s star is on the rise with the popularity of the energetic, joyous anthem “White Flag.” The Portland-based group headlines the inaugural Concert for Kids in Boise. Presented by 94.9 FM The River, a portion of the evening’s proceeds will be donated to the Idaho Youth Ranch. There also will be a fundraising raffle.

The singing sisters — Natalie Closner Schepman and twins Allison Closner and Meegan Closner — have appeared on “The Today Show,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Ellen” and more.

Fun fact: The group’s name is a tribute to the sisters’ grandfather, Jo, and the eastern Oregon town of Joseph, where he lived.

The day after Concert for Kids, Joseph will open for country mega-stars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill at Taco Bell Arena.
