Saturday 6th  Come and join us at St Paul’s Church in Withington, South Manchester to celebrate The Bailey Sisters’ 5th Anniversary and to launch our second studio album, “Songs from the Distaff Side”.  Oh, and there will be mulled wine & mince pies too.  

We began properly with a Christmas concert in 2009 at Todmorden, so it seemed fitting to celebrate 5 years since then with another one.  It promises to be an excellent evening with lots of your favourite Bailey Sisters songs . . . We may even throw in one or two Christmas numbers!

For those who want to make a day of it, we are hosting an open mic session at 2:30pm followed by dinner at 5.00pm at a nearby carvery.   The concert will begin at 7:30pm.
