BATH — For the fifth consecutive year, the Chocolate Church presents a series of Christmas-themed concerts and shows in December. This weekend best reflects the diversity of that entertainment schedule. The Sweetback Sisters return to the main stage on Friday with their Country Christmas Sing-Along Spectacular. On Saturday, the musical pendulum swings to feature Turning of the Year Celtic Christmas. Both shows begin at 7:30 p.m.

Sweetback Sisters Country Christmas Sing-Along Spectacular is a wide-ranging program of holiday music, from well-loved Christmas carols to classic winter-themed songs to lesser-know country gems. All the songs are presented with the Sweetback Sisters’ signature mix of harmony singing, rollicking telecaster and twin fiddling along with a healthy dose of holiday cheer.

Tickets are $18 advance and $22 at the door.

On Saturday, John Whelan, who is a 7-time All-Ireland accordion champion and Narada recording artist, will team up with roots band Low Lily and Scottish-style fiddler Katie McNally for this Turning of the New Year holiday mini-fest.

Featuring traditional and original music from Ireland, Scotland, and America, this diverse show will help usher in the holiday season. Alongside uptempo jigs and reels will be lesser-known Christmas carols and wintry classics, featuring two fiddles, accordion, guitars, mandolin, and lush, layered vocals.

Tickets for each show are $18 advance and $22 at the door, available by calling the box office at 442-8455 or online www.chocolatechurcharts.org.
