|The Siren Sisters - Used With Permission: Sarah Perryman|
Much of the featured music always helped add authenticity to the Dad's Army shows and it was an added bonus a few years ago when I attended the stage show Dad's Army Marches On at Cardiff New Theatre that I caught a live appearance in the theatre's bar area of three girls, whom I later discovered were The Siren Sisters performing a selection of songs from the Second World War.
Before the show began the girls belted out a selection of classic wartime favourites capturing the essence of The Andrew Sisters but adding much of their own unique charm.
Since that time, the girls (who all originate from Wales) have gone from strength to strength, and recently released a CD of Christmas songs.
Check out The Siren Sisters excellent retro style website which is packed with soundbytes and video clips as well as information on forthcoming live appearances.
