Twenty years ago, The Solstice Sisters released their first collection of holiday recordings, which proved able to warm the heart of even the most grinchlike townie. Though the group remained a fixture on the live scene, especially during the holiday season, its next batch of tunes came in 2008 in response to fans requesting music they could spin during non-holiday months. (The record’s title? The Rest of the Year.) The group’s once-a-decade release schedule continued with Maybe by Christmas, released earlier this month. The Sisters and guests will play tunes from the LP at a solstice show featuring plenty of Classic City cheer.
THE SOLSTICE SISTERS Old-time country ballads, traditional folk and '40s-style swing with sweet, warm harmonies. See Calendar Pick on p. 13.
