While most girls her age fawn over teim idol groups such as N'Sync and Backstreet Boys, Clark is wielding an electric guitar and singing backup parts to Eric Clapton's "Layla." She said while she appreciates some of the modem efforts, her musical taste seems to lean toward classic rock and roll. "In some ways I'tl always like the older stuff better," said Clark, who also takes turns as drummer. Walt Hetfield, Rehoboth Elementary School music teacher and band director, said he enjoys the mentor-musician relationship he shares with Clark. While she By Jen Ellingsworth One of the newest bands on the local scene, Little Sister is any- thing but your ordinary cover band. The group feattlres a full com- plement of talent, highlighted by members Scott MacDonald, Diana Butler, Mike Long, Dave Reters and Walt Hetfield. All have been involved in bands and music, on different levels, for many years. At the center of this ensemble is fifteen year old Colleen Clark. Don't let the youthful age of the band's sixth member fool you, though. The band's very own "lit- tle sister" is a well-versed, award- winning musician and member of the former group The Channel Surfers. The Cape Henlopen High School sophomore cites The Meg Clifton, left, and Sheryl Skye are two of the artists slat- ed for the Female Singer-Songwriter Festival at Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats on Saturday, Sept. 18 Suzanne OHver (not shown), of the former band Swiirl, will also headline the festival.

Hetfield said he couldn't have been happier to find a musical counterpart in one of his students. "It got to be so much fun [work- ing with Clark on songs during lessons] that I felt bad charging her money," he laughed. "I have always liked the Aliman Brothers, but couldn't find anybody to play the parts with me. She could." Drummer Scott MacDonald echoed Hetfield's sentiment. "I quit pl:ying drums seven years ago, until I saw Colleen with the Channel Surfers," he said. Rehearsals are lighthearted, with members of the band dou- bling up on instruments and tak- ing turns singing. The material the band covers ranges from clas- sics to modern rock - songs from The Kinks to those by Lit and the Foo Fighters. New material is always in the mix, though. The band rehearses on a regular basis and strives to keep its music inter- esting and fresh, said Hetfield. While Little Sister has only been on the scene for a little more than a month, the band has played gigs at Bethany's Bay Cafe and Sydney's Blues & Jazz Restaurant, and has a performance slated at Sir Guys on Friday, Sept. 17. Little Sister will also play at underdetermined venues during the upcoming jazz festival, said Hetfield. Meanwhile, Clark is enjoying being the youngest sib- ling in group.
