Wynotte Sisters holiday show

The Wynotte Sisters return to 6 On The Square for holiday show

Folk trio The Wynotte Sisters will bring their eclectic holiday show to 6 On The Square in Oxford at 7 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8.

The group includes three friends who reside in the Hudson Valley: 

alt-country singer/songwriter and fiddler Sara Milonovich, bassist/ukulele player Daria Grace, and Norwegian power-pop vocalist Vibeke Saugestad.

The Wynotte Sisters play original material as well as genre-crossing covers from off the beaten track, including vintage Andrews Sisters, Steve Earle, Pink, and a trove of unexpected holiday songs.

Local music fans should recognize Milonovich — an award-winning fiddler and singer — not just for her own band Daisycutter but her time in Celtic / world music band the McKrells and her occasional supporting role alongside Richard Shindell, Pete Seeger, Eliza Gilkyson and others on the folk / singer-songwriter circuit.

Grace’s full-time band is the Pre-War Ponies, which digs up obscure tunes from the 1920s through the 1940s and gives them new life.

For the 6OTS show, the trio will harmonize on tunes that are beyond the usual holiday fare, a few of which are collected on their EP “Christmas with the Wynotte Sisters.”
