Upbeat, sassy musicians that have fun while making great music, the Good Lovelies enliven their concerts with three-part harmonies, constant instrument swapping and clever on-stage banter. The trio, Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore, all play guitar, bass and percussion, as well as sing. Brooks and Ough also play banjo, Brooks and Passmore play mandolin, and Ough plays keyboards. Since they joined forces in 2006 for their first show at Toronto's funky Gladstone Hotel, they have taken their Western swing/folk music on tour across Canada and the United States. Winners of the 2010 Canadian Juno Award for Roots Album of the Year and the New Emerging Artist Award at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the Good Lovelies are making fans and a career for themselves in North America.
The group has released four albums - "Oh My!" in 2007; "Good Lovelies" in January 2009 with 11 original songs; a 12-track holiday album, "Under The Mistletoe," in November 2009 with three original songs as well as seasonal favorites; and "Let The Rain Fall" in 2011.
This concert is funded in part by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. For more information on the performers, go online to their agent's website, their website or their blog site.
