Live! @ Athens-Clarke County Library: Solstice Sisters, January 5

ATHENS, Ga. — The Friends of Athens-Clarke County Library invite the public to enjoy a New Year's tradition at Athens-Clarke County Library on Sunday, Jan. 5. The Solstice Sisters will be back with old favorites and tunes from their new album, "Maybe By Christmas,” for January’s Live @ the Library. Join us in the Athens-Clarke County Library’s Appleton Auditorium on Sunday, January 5, 2020, at 3:00 p.m.

Local musicians Susan Staley, Anna Durden, and Maggie Hunter are the Solstice Sisters, accompanied by Lee Hiers on Dobro and Mike Harrison on bass, known not only for their three-part harmonies but also for their spontaneous and energetic live shows. The trio harmonizes a blend of old-time country ballads, traditional folk and 1940s-style swing.

 This performance is the latest installment of the Live! @ the Library concert series. The concert is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by the Friends of the Athens-Clarke County Library. For more information, call the library at (706) 613-3650. The Athens-Clarke County Library is located at 2025 Baxter Street, Athens.
