Event Archive - The Good Lovelies

Mon. April 21st 2014 8pm @  St. James Community Hall (All Ages) 8pm
$24 ($20 members)
Tickets at: www.roguefolk.bc.ca, Rufus Guitar Shop, Highlife Records
Presented by: The Rogue Folk Club
Funny and upbeat, with just a pinch of sass, the Good Lovelies‘ textbook three-part harmonies, constant instrument swapping and witty on-stage banter have enlivened the folk music landscape since they joined forces in 2006 for their first show at Toronto’s funky Gladstone Hotel.

How the Good Lovelies (Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore) got together is a bit of a mystery: Sue remembers meeting her band mates during a limbo competition, Caroline thinks they met at a chess tournament, but Kerri is convinced they first crossed paths during a bar fight… Whatever the story may be, the ladies immediately realized they had something special, so they hit the road on a mission to charm Canadian audiences coast to coast.

Lighthearted songwriting and irresistibly buoyant dispositions have made them the darlings of the summer festival circuit, including spots at the storied Mariposa andHillside Festivals and the Montreal Jazz Festival. They have toured with Stuart McLean and the Vinyl Cafe and appeared on stages and in studios with Broken Social Scene, Kathleen Edwards and Jill Barber.

Their newest release, Live at Revolution — and winner of two 2013 Canadian Folk Music Awards for Best Vocal Group & Best Ensemble — highlights the energy and variety of their live show. Their albums, like the Good Lovelies, have a universal appeal, sure to please not just their fellow Canadians, but like-minded folks south of the border and across the ocean.
