The Good Lovelies
GOOD LOVELIES, SATURDAY 6TH APRIL, 2019
We are delighted to welcome back the Good Lovelies to Town Hall Live and this time they will perform as a full band.
You hear it said a lot these days that something is greater than the sum of its parts, and yet there is no better way to describe the musical essence of the Good Lovelies.
Kerri Ough, Sue Passmore and Caroline Brooks are immensely talented vocalists and song writers in their own right, however it is their voices, interwoven in harmony that elevates the Good Lovelies from impressive to peerless.
Over the course of their 13 year career they have covered plenty of stylistic ground, adding tinges of pop, roots and jazz to their country-folk core. The girls first got together in 2006 for a one off performance and have since compiled a catalogue of four studio albums, two EP’s, a Live album and a Christmas collection. Through it all, the unmistakable sound of their intertwined voices has been their sonic anchor.
Since their last appearance at Town Hall Live, they have released their latest album ‘Shapeshifters’. The album offers a perfect balance between a more modern production sound and the wholesome musical influences that have made them a household name in Canada. What’s more is that the songs themselves build on the Good Lovelies familiar foundation with a widespread appeal.
After their 2017 UK and European tour, they toured Australia for a month long series of dates. On their return to Canada, they embarked on a national theatre tour that culminated in a concert at the world renowned Massey Hall on Toronto.
The girls will be joined on their latest tour by Stave Zsurias on bass and Robbie Grunwald on piano. Caroline will play electric and acoustic guitars, Kerri will play banjo and guitar, whilst Sue will play guitar and percussion. And of course, each will take it in turns to sing lead vocals.
Support will come from Newfoundland duo FORTUNATE ONES. They are Catherine Allen and Andrew O’Brien , and are known for their dynamic live performances with effortless harmonies and anthemic melodies. The pair, from St John’s released their new album, ‘Hold Fast’ in May last year and are widely tipped to be the next great entertainers from Newfoundland.
