Sister Swing is an exciting trio of singers that has captured the sound of the girl groups of the 1930s and 1940s, bringing to the 21st century the wonderful female singing group sound and the timeless songs of long ago. Heavily influenced by the three-part harmonies of groups like the Andrews Sisters, Sister Swing brings a new sound to an old style. They currently can be seen at many of the jazz festivals around the country, including the Sacramento Music Festival. They have been performing since 1996 when they performed with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra. This is their second visit to Georgetown.
