The Sweetback Sisters - Special Acoustic Show will be presented Saturday, January 20 at 7:30 p.m. in Robbins Memorial Chapel on the Davis & Elkins College campus. General Admission: $18. The D&E campus community may use their ticket membership to redeem their complimentary tickets in advance.
The Sweetback Sisters, Zara Bode and Emily Miller, come from Brooklyn, but philosophically, they hail from a parallel universe, an alternate timeline in which honky-tonk became the dominant sound in modern country music. Hailed as "brilliant" by NBC New York, the band has a dedicated following in the United States and Europe. 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." Presented by Davis & Elkins College.
