2008_05_05 Swinging Sisters Club at CBC Centre Stage
CBC's centre stage is springing forth with music every day this week. On Monday I dropped by to catch Kate Ryan, Bridget Ryan, and Beth Portman - the Swinging Sisters - do a preview of their upcoming show.
Like Mark Connelly the CBC host, I felt jealous when they sang "Oh, Johnny, Oh Johnny - how he could love". The swinging sisters delivered fresh new arrangements of old familiar songs under the direction of Roxanne Classen. I saw this show at the Fringe and enjoyed every minute.
The Swinging Sisters Club presents a Mother's Day Weekend Treat at Pleasantview Hall at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm on Saturday. Music from the 40's. Take mom - and gram. They'll both enjoy it.
