Sweetback Sisters bring honky-tonk flair to Christmas at Chocolate Church [Sun Journal (Lewiston, ME)]

December 3, 2013


BATH - The Sweetback Sisters will add a burst of energy to traditional Christmas songs with their concert Saturday, Dec. 14, at the Chocolate Church Arts Center, 804 Washington Street. The show begins at 7:30 p.m.

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 Everlys to The Judds, as well as the spirited rockabilly energy.

Audiences go wild for their close harmonies, charismatic stage presence and the crackling musicianship of their cohorts. But while the Sweetback Sisters formed due to their deep love of classic country music, their individual foundations are quite varied. Even with well-known Christmas songs, the tension between their various backgrounds gives the music something original and exciting. Their music is an homage to what country music used to be: a melting pot of rock, jazz, and traditional music.

Tickets, available online at or by calling 207-442-8455, are $12 advance, $15 door.
