BRATTLEBORO -- Armed with a new CD, The Sweetback Sisters present their annual Country Christmas Singalong Spectacular on Sunday, Dec. 16, at 7:30 p.m., at the New England Youth Theatre, 100 Flat St.

This supremely fun and popular show requires audience participation (lyric sheets are provided) and a love for all kinds of holiday music. All the songs are presented with the Sweetback Sisters’ signature mix of harmony singing, rollicking telecaster and twin fiddling along with a healthy dose of holiday cheer. 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 1950s and ‘60s. In addition to vocalists Miller and Bode, the band also features Brattleboro’s own Stefan Amidon on drums and vocals, Jesse Milnes on fiddle, guitar and vocals, Ross Bellenoit on guitar and vocals and Peter Bitenc on bass.

On their new album, titled "The Sweetback Sisters Country Christmas Singalong Spectacular," the band turns to the canon of Christmas and holiday songs, arranged in a youthful yet nostalgic way.

Tickets to the Brattleboro show are $15 in advance, $18 at the door. For tickets, visit www.brattleborotix.com.
