The Sweetback Sisters’ Country Christmas Singalong Spectacular
181 State St
Each December, Brooklyn’s favorite country band tours the east coast and spreads the holiday cheer with The Sweetback Sisters’ Country Christmas Singalong Spectacular. This supremely fun and wildly popular show requires audience participation (lyric sheets are provided) and a love for all kinds of holiday music. All the songs are presented with the Sweetback Sisters’ signature mix of harmony singing, rollicking telecaster and twin fiddling along with a healthy dose of holiday cheer.
Sweetback Sisters Emily Miller and Zara Bode may not be blood relations, but their precise, family-style harmonies recall the best of country music from the 1950s and 60s. The band takes their inspiration from the Davis Sisters and Louvin Brothers as well as the spirited honky tonk energy of Wanda Jackson and Loretta Lynn. On this album, The Sweetback Sisters turn to the canon of Christmas and holiday songs, arranged in a youthful yet nostalgic way.
