Touring with their latest album, The Sweetback Sisters bring their swinging country sound to the Pocahontas County Opera House stage at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 9.
Tickets are $10. Children 17 and younger are admitted free of charge.
Sweetback Sisters Emily Miller and Zara Bode may not be blood relatives, but their family-style harmonies recall the best of country music from the Everlys to The Judds, as well as the spirited rockabilly energy of Wanda Jackson—one of the band's role models.
"We're a renegade retro band that mixes up country, swing and honky tonk," Bode said in a press release. "Sometimes what we deliver is straight out of the 1950s; other times it's BR549 meets The B52s."
The Sisters have been touring since they released "Chicken Ain't Chicken" in 2009. Their new CD is "Looking For A Fight."
Doors at the Opera House open at 6:30 p.m. Friday. Tickets are available in advance
at pocahontasoperahouse.org and at the 4th
Avenue Gallery in Marlinton. The
Pocahontas County Opera House is located at 818
Third Avenue in Marlinton.
