Sisters offer up sugar, spice and the ukelele

SASSINESS and swing are coming to Cornerstone in Didcot tomorrow night (Saturday) in the form of the Sugar Sisters.

Normally three solo performers, Ruby Wood (Submotion Orchestra), Stac (Wah Wah 45s) and Heather McClelland have been brought together by a love of three-part harmonies, red lipstick and the ukelele.

As three accomplished and stylistically individual solo artists, the Sugar Sisters deliver sophisticated harmonies and arrangements of Forties swing, Nineties R’n’B and Calypso with a playful sassiness and infectious charm.

Their performances are always vibrant and dynamic and have the ability to captivate any audience.

In February last year, the Sugar Sisters were spotted busking on Portobello Road by Terry Wogan’s producer and were invited to perform live on his Radio 2 show Weekend Wogan.



Since then their popularity has grown and they have gone on to perform at the Chelsea Flower Show and supported Charles Aznavour at the Royal Albert Hall.

An appearance on The One Show on BBC One was followed by a live slot on Children in Need.

And most recently the trio sold out the Marsden Jazz Festival in their own right.

These sisters have got a very bright future ahead of them if their recent success is anything to go by. Don’t miss them as they perform in the intimate setting of Cornerstone’s auditorium.

Tickets for the Sugar Sisters are £15 or £13.50 concessions and can be booked by calling the Station Road venue’s box office on 01235 515144 or online at www.cornerstone-arts.org
