Sister Wilene performs at Ramsdell

Group opens winter/spring series Saturday

MANISTEE — Sister Wilene performs at the Ramsdell Theater for the opening of its "A Little Night Music" winter/spring concert series on Saturday, Jan. 19, at 7:30 p.m.

Sister Wilene's sound is built around lead singer and rhythm guitar player Mary Sue Wilkinson. From the traditions of Patsy Cline to Bob Wills, from honky-tonks to dance halls to front porches, Sister Wilene performs well-loved ballads and swing songs as well as originals penned by band member Roger Brown. Vocal duets feature Wilkinson and Brown in tight harmony, reminiscent of George and Tammy or Dolly and Porter.

Tickets are $15 advance or $20 at the door. Outlets include Manistee City Hall, Goody's, Hokanson's, Port City Organics, TJ's Pub and the Manistee Visitors Bureau. Call 398-9770 or visit
