The Sweetback Sisters Annual Country Christmas Singalong Spectacular
December 16, 2019 @ 7:00 pm$20 – $30
Tickets: $30 for adults, $20 for children
Christmastime is here again and so are the Sweetback Sisters with their annual Country Christmas Singalong Spectacular! This wildly popular show (returning to Newburyport for the sixth year in a row) delivers a veritable explosion of yuletide splendor, complete with trivia, prizes, and, of course, all the holiday tunes you know and love. Year-round, the Sweetback Sisters and their band of brothers wow audiences with their precise, family-style harmonies and blazing instrumentals. For this show, the Queens of Christmastime bring their signature mix of modern nostalgia to a wide array of holiday classics and hidden gems that are sure to get even your scroogiest uncle in a festive spirit. Songbooks and plenty of warm fuzzy feelings provided.
Hailed as “brilliant” by NBC New York, The Sweetback Sisters first emerged in 2007 with their debut EP, ‘Bang!’ The collection earned them a record deal with stalwart indie label Signature Sounds, and over the course of three ensuing albums, the band built a dedicated following in the US and Europe and racked up a heap of critical acclaim. The New Yorker raved that the women are “strong singers who revel in close harmonies,” while Sing Out! said that their music “bristles with the energy of the very best young American performers,” and NPR praised them as “Americana darlings with a roadhouse edge.” With a live show that The Boston Globe described as “the perfect balance of sass, sincerity and swing,” the Sisters have performed everywhere from A Prairie Home Companion to Mountain Stage and graced festivals from coast to coast in addition to selling out theaters with their annual Country Christmas Singalong Spectacular.
Proceeds from this performance benefit the Christmas Tree Santas. The local non-profit has a holiday mission to spread hope and joy by giving free Christmas trees with lights and ornaments to low-income families. This year the Santas will give away over 2,000 trees to individuals in need.
