Celtic Connections presents

Celtic Connections 2012: The Sweetback Sisters

plus support to be announced

Sat 28 Jan 2012 | 7.30pm | £ 14 + bf

The Sweetback Sisters plus support to be announced play the Arches, Glasgow as part of Celtic Connections festival 2012.

They ain’t no blood relations – indeed, the full Sweetback sisterhood includes a rockin’ four-man band – but Kansas/California-born singers and songwriters Emily Miller and Zara Bode share a rare vocal chemistry usually confined to families. Their 2011 second album Looking for a Fight comprises mainly original material, steeped in vintage country, swing, honky-tonk and old-time flavours, plus covers of Patsy Cline, Hazel Dickens and the Traveling Wilburys.

Glasgow’s annual folk, roots and world music festival, Celtic Connections is a celebration of Celtic music and its connections with music across the globe, with more than 300 events in venues and locations across Glasgow from 19th Jan – 5th Feb 2012.
