Sunday February 17th – Calling all Music Lovers


Join the Calaveras Arts Council Ovation Concert SEries Valentine’s Weekend performance by the T Sisters at Bret Harte Performing Arts Center in Angels Camp, CA. . Distinguished by close harmonies, catchy melodies and potent lyricism, the T Sisters’ sound represents a continuum of music: from roots to pop influences, moments of stunning a cappella to swells of groovy indie folk. The sisters’ contemporary yet classic sound invites a range of likenesses, with classic harmonies akin to the Pointer Sisters and the Everly Brothers and modern kinship with family bands like the Avett Brothers and First Aid Kit.
