Overview

Overview HONKY TONK ANGELS Karen Collins & The Backroads Band

Great gal led country bands! DC's Karen Collins and the Backroads Band play honky tonk, original shuffles, buckle-polishing slow tunes and twangin' covers from Hank Williams and Ernest Tubb to Loretta Lynn. A renegade retro band, Brooklyn's Sweetback Sisters Emily Miller and Zara Bode may not be blood relations, but their precise, family-style harmonies recall the Everlys, The Judds, and the sassy rockabilly of Wanda Jackson. Vocalists Ann Porcella and Lynn Healey of Collins’ second band Blue Moon Cowgirls join in, celebrating their appearance on Backroads’ new disc No Yodeling on the Radio.
