The Chenille Sisters to Appear At Owens Center for Fine and Performing Arts, May 8
Beautiful voices and energetic banter will fill Owens Community College’s Center for Fine and Performing Arts as the nationally known Chenille Sisters perform on Saturday, May 8. The group’s only appearance will occur at 8 p.m. in the College’s Mainstage Theatre.
“Owens’ Center for Fine and Performing Arts is proud to conclude our inaugural arts presenting season with such a talented group of musicians as the Chenille Sisters,” said Dr. Brian Bethune, Owens Chair for Fine and Performing Arts. “Fresh, funny and full of enthusiasm, the Chenille Sisters harmonize a variety of music from country to swing, creating their own unique style. Attending individuals are in store for a wonderful musical experience.”
Founded in 1985, the Chenille Sisters are best known for their irreverent country-folk sound. They also are famous for their tongue-in-cheek lyrics that keep listeners laughing, while at the same time gripped by their harmonic voices. The group has recorded 11 albums and thrilled audiences from their native Ann Arbor, Michigan, and nationwide.
The Chenille Sisters have appeared on Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion”, as well as National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered”. In 1995 the group starred in an Emmy award-winning PBS special titled “Makin’ Rhythm”. They also hosted “Read to Me,” a National Public Radio show focused on children’s book reviews. Members of the group are Cheryl Dawdy, Connie Huber and Grace Morland.
