Ticket Giveaway - Larkin Poe - 5.1.12 - Club Cafe - Show Preview - Concert Preview

Larkin Poe will be appearing next Tuesday 5.1 at Club Cafe in the Southside. The duo is made up of sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell, who had previously toured with a third sister in a bluegrass group. The band is touring behind 4 EP's all name after the seasons: Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer.  The sisters reinvented their sound from bluegrass to more of an alt country. Still in their early 20's, the sisters are well accompolished musicians playing the guitar, dobro, lapsteel, mandolin and ukulele between all albums. They comparable to Ryan Adams in my opinion. We are happy to be giving away a pair of tickets to the show. As usual just email us at: pghmusicreport@gmail.com

From their press:

Our musical journey, which began for us as children playing classical violin and piano at the ages of 5 and 6, continued through our teenage years as we toured internationally from 2005 to 2010 as The Lovell Sisters. This incarnation, which included our eldest sister, Jessica, took us from the stage of the Grand Ole Opry to wonderful summer festivals such as Bonnaroo and Telluride, and even gave us the opportunity to collaborate with the likes of Elvis Costello. In January 2010, after saying ‘farewell’ to The Lovell Sisters, the musical story of our young adulthood has begun in the form of our new band, Larkin Poe.

Larkin Poe released its debut EP, Spring, on February 17, 2010. As a brand new band, we were looking for a way to bring our friends, family and fans along with us on our musical journey as we discovered (and continue to discover) who we are as Larkin Poe. Looking for an answer – and always looking to do things in our own way – we decided to embark upon the quest of recording and releasing four seasonally themed EPs in 2010: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. What better way to let folks be a part of our development as a band than to record and release our newest experimentations every few months? After 12 months of non-stop work, all four EPs were successfully released in 2010 (and additionally compiled into a box-set: “The Band For All Season”) and continue to garner attention and good reviews internationally.

Show begins at 8p with doors at 7p. Tickets are only $10 and can be found here
