Sweetback Sisters bringing holiday cheer to Portsmouth High

Common Fence Music hosts Country Christmas Singalong Spectacular on Saturday

Posted

PORTSMOUTH — Get into the holiday spirit this Saturday, Dec. 8, with The Sweetback Sisters’ 10th annual Country Christmas Singalong at the Portsmouth High School auditorium, 120 Education Lane.

Common Fence Music (CFM) is hosting the concert, which begins at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:15 p.m. for members, 6:30 p.m. for non-members).

This wildly popular show 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 family-friendly 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. 

Tickets are $25 in advance, $28 at the door, $23 for CFM members, $15 for children ages 3-12, and free for children ages 2 and under. 

Ticket prices include a $3 donation to the Kate Grana Music & Art Association (KGMAA). Founded in 2018 in memory of beloved former Portsmouth music teacher Kate Grana, the KGMAA works to assist in fund-raising for an improved center for music and the performing arts at Portsmouth High School.

Concert attendees should enter through the school’s main entrance. The hall is fully accessible.  

No outside food or beverages are permitted. Coffee, tea, cocoa and plenty of holiday goodies will be available for purchase. All concession sales will benefit the KGMAA.
