The Sanctuary Concert Series and Chatham Patch have teamed up to offer two pairs of tickets to see The Burns Sisters in the last Sanctuary Concert of the 2010-2011 season.
The Burns Sisters are made up of Annie, Marie and Jeannie (the seventh, eighth and ninth of 12 children). The sisters come to the Sanctuary Concert Series on a night off from their current tour with Arlo Guthrie.
Together the sisters have released eight albums as a group, and each of them have released individual albums as well. Their music has been called a "blend of sweet vocals, countrified pop-rock, and diary-inspired tales of longing, love, loss, regret and affirmation," according to the Syracuse New Times.
Scott Sheldon, the head of the Sanctuary Concert Series, said The Burns Sisters "combine acoustic folk with Celtic and gospel influences, delivered with a heartfelt spirit and consummate musicianship."
The Burns Sisters perform at the on Saturday at 8 p.m. Tickets for The Burns Sisters are on sale for $10 and include an ice cream social, as well as coffee, juice and cookies during the intermission and CDs on sale for $1 as part of the End of Season Audience Appreciation.
Chatham Patch also has a pair of free tickets to give away to the first two readers to email in the correct answer to this trivia question:
The Burns Sisters, who will be performing at the Sanctuary Concerts’ Year-End Concert are often compared to another sister group, The Roches. Like The Roches, the Burns Sisters started out as a different set of sisters. Which two of the fourteen Burns siblings eventually left the group?
